Objective

The ISA Fast Track Fellowship will catapult the careers of TWO emerging writers with industry access, continued script development and career guidance.

The Fellowship’s mission is to provide access to top industry professionals and the opportunity to build relationships that would normally take years to cultivate. Two selected fellows will be flown to Los Angeles to participate in a week of meetings with EIGHT top-level industry mentors, capped off with a party in their honor at ISA's Third Thursdays.

The Fellowship continues with a full year of visibility through the ISA Development Slate and script support provided by The Story Farm.

54 Writers on the ISA Development Slate have been optioned and or produced, for at least one project.

The ISA is here to give writers a shortcut to resources, support and experience that will aid in long-term career success. We believe in supporting screenwriters no matter who they are or where they came from, and we encourage writers of all levels and backgrounds to apply.

As part of his ISA prize package, he scored a week of industry meetings and wound up signing with manager Jewerl Ross of Silent R Management. He'll be moving to Los Angeles in September.
