Aim and Benefits of Black List and Google Assistant Storytelling Fellowship

Up to five writers will receive $20,000 each for the purpose of supporting those writers for six months as they work to draft their new feature screenplays and/or teleplays. During the course of those six months, the Black List and Google Assistant will also pair each fellowship recipient with a screenwriting mentor.


Requirements for Black List and Google Assistant Storytelling Fellowship Qualification

Pitches should be contemporary in nature and avoid violence and/or illegal activity as the premise of the story. Completed scripts can include the natural helpfulness of technology in everyday life, but shouldn’t be focused around technology or from a dystopian view. At the end of the Fellowship, each recipient would provide Google with a copy of their new draft along with a report addressing how the grant has been used to advance their work.

Selection Process:

Opt-ins will be open until midnight on Friday, January 15, 2021. On Monday, January 18, 2021, up to 15 writers will be invited, based on the strength of their scripts as determined by the Black List, to submit a one-page personal statement and professional resume. Those materials will be due on Friday, January 22, 2021. From those submissions, up to five (5) writers will be selected by the Black List and Google Assistant to receive the 2021-2021 Storytelling Fellowship. Fellowship recipients will be notified in February 2021.
