Fellowship Panel: WB Writers’ Workshop

I attended another TV fellowship panel – this time with Chris Mack, who is the current head of the Warner Bros. Writers’ Workshop. He talked about the benefits of the program, what they look for in the selection process, and offered some helpful advice for writers while stressing the importance of having a strong voice in your writing.

I’ve been a long-time fan of the Warner Bros. brand and the shows they’ve put out. I also used to work at WB, so they hold a special place in my heart. I’m so thankful I was able to attend this panel and get a little more insight into the program as I prepare my application this year. I did some rigorous note-taking, so for my fellow writers, I hope you find the information below useful!

Be sure to read my previous blog post 2016 TV Writing Fellowships and Workshops if you’re interested in knowing when, what, and how to apply for the program. And check out my blog post on the NBC Writers on the Verge fellowship panel I attended a couple weeks ago.

My Top 7 Favorite TV Siblings

I LOVE a great romance on TV, but there’s something about a great sibling relationship that just makes my heart melt in a whole different kind of way.  So in honor of National Siblings Day 2016, I thought I’d share some of my all-time favorite siblings on television!

7. Elijah and Niklaus Mikaelson (The Originals/The Vampire Diaries)

As part of the Original vampire family, there’s bound to be some dysfunction.  Now it may be hard to see sometimes, but these half-brothers really do value family and each other above all else.  Elijah has always been the good older brother to his rebellious, selfish vampire-werewolf hybrid brother Klaus.  They fight more than the average siblings (how many times have they been daggered?) but that just makes their relationship all the more dynamic and interesting.  In the recent The Vampire Diaries/The Originals crossover episode, Klaus says that he has spent an eternity watching Elijah sacrifice everything good he has for him.  At least Elijah’s efforts don’t go unnoticed — he’s spent centuries trying to help Klaus find his redemption.  On The Originals Elijah gives Klaus a heartwarming speech that sums everything up pretty nicely:Read More »

Fellowship Panel: NBC Writers on the Verge

Fellowship season is quickly approaching! I recently attended a small panel with Karen Horne, who currently runs the NBC Writers on the Verge program. She talked about the NBCUniversal brand, the Writers on the Verge program and how it equips writers, what they’re looking for, and general advice for writers. It was so helpful and enlightening and makes me that much more excited to apply to the WOTV program again this year!

For any of my fellow writers, please enjoy the fruits of my fierce note-taking labors with all this information I compiled and organized from the panel. And be sure to check out my previous blog post 2016 TV Writing Fellowships and Workshops if you’re interested in knowing when, what, and how to apply for the program.
