It includes skill development by professional instructors, direct mentoring of works-in-progress and seminars on various legal, guild and industry topics.

This is a great opportunity for experienced writers looking to develop their story or script. Applications must be postmarked by Friday, March 27. For more details as well as a complete application, log on to nmfilm.com.
