Stage 32 Happy Writers is excited to present our winners for this exclusive fellowship opportunity! Together with the Writers Assistant Network, we have teamed up with agents and managers from over a dozen of the industry's most influential companies to create this three month fellowship for ten aspiring TV writers!

This group has been created to mine for new talent and will be closely supervised by these agents and managers. Eight of the ten spots have be assigned to writers currently working as writers’ assistants or other support staff on TV's hottest shows, with the last two reserved exclusively for two Stage 32 members.

After poring over thousands of submissions, the top ten were vetted by the Writer's Assistant Network. From those ten, two have been chosen to represent the Stage 32 Happy Writers at this exclusive fellowship.

Today we are proud to announce the two winners of the Stage 32 Happy Writers & Writers Assistant Network TV Writing Fellowship Contest!

Our two winners will meet with this exclusive writer's fellowship every Sunday for the next 12 weeks. Each week they will work with the group to develop a pilot from the ground up, all the while being mentored by working TV writers and writer-producers. At the end of the fellowship, they will present their completed pilots to the supervising agents and managers for consideration and representation. This is an entirely unique opportunity that promises to be the first step to a successful career in Hollywood, and we couldn't be more proud to have Frank, Mark, and Joey take part and represent the very best of Stage 32 Happy Writers.
