FELLOWSHIP PARTNERS, REQUIREMENTS AND CONTENT:
We are proud to offer fellowships to our Stowe Story Labs in partnership with industry partners. Here is some information about each fellowship:
PAGE International Screenwriting Awards — Widely recognized as one of the most important resources for emerging screenwriters, the PAGE International Screenwriting Awards was founded in 2003 by an alliance of Hollywood producers, agents, and development executives to discover the most exciting new scripts by up-and-coming writers from around the world. Two PAGE Fellowships will be awarded annually to PAGE Quarter-finalists who apply to the Labs. We will confirm with the team at PAGE which Stowe Story Labs applicants also made the quarter-finals with PAGE and will award two such applicants with a PAGE fellowship. The fellowship covers fees and meals at Stowe Story Labs, a year of ongoing mentoring and the recipients will receive a free copy of Final Draft 9, courtesy of Final Draft.
