The Writers Guild of America East, along with the Mayor’s Office of Media and Entertainment, and the New York City Department of Small Business Services announced their second Made in NY Writers Room. We are excited that CALA is a referring organization for the six-month television writing fellowship, designed specifically to support underrepresented writers who live in New York City.
CALA’s Andrew Dicus, Visiting Clinical Assistant Professor of Applied Writing, noted, “Lack of diversity is an ongoing, industry-wide problem for TV and film production, and it’s great to see that we have been able to find ways to play a small role in addressing it. NYU SPS is not only a destination for stellar professional and non-credit instruction, but also a valuable industry partner, committed to supporting faculty and students who see and want to address these kinds of systemic problems.”
