Universal Writers Program

UNI GTDI Logo

The submission period for the 2019 Universal Writers Program is open. Deadline is October 31, 2018. For updates and additional information about the program and Global Talent Development & Inclusion (GTDI), please visit http://www.universaltalentdevelopment.com or follow GTDI on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.

The Universal Writers Program identifies up-and-coming and experienced screenwriters with unique points of view that build upon the Studio’s commitment to telling stories and creating films that reflect the vast diversity of our audiences. Created under terms approved by the Writers Guild of America West (WGAW), the Program develops storytellers who organically incorporate multi-cultural and global perspectives in screenwriting.

The one-year paid program engages writers to create material for development consideration; however concept development is not guaranteed. From pitch to final draft, writers are afforded creative guidance from executives, producers and designated creative consultants. In addition to penning two (2) feature-length scripts, writers participate in a curriculum designed to strengthen their creative and professional development as well as overall knowledge of the Studio production process from pitch to premiere. The Program also provides access to agents, managers and various industry professionals through meetings and/or events.

Writers selected to participate in the Program are hired under a writing service agreement requiring a full-time commitment of a minimum of 40 hours per week. Additionally, should a writer’s material be identified as potential development content, UFEG has the option to extend the writer’s contract for a term of up to one additional year.
