The Nickelodeon Writing Program is a full-time, paid, yearlong development Program for television comedy writers with unique voices and from underrepresented communities.
Join them at the studio in Burbank for classes and workshops to sharpen your skills, executive mentorship and networking to build your professional relationships, and the opportunity to work in the iconic live-action and animation writers’ rooms at Nick. This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to dedicate yourself to the craft of writing and build your career from the ground up.
The Nick Writing Program is not a writing contest – It’s a launching pad for diverse and emerging creatives. If you bring the unique voice and innovative ideas for kids’ and family content, they’ll help you launch a career with all the tools you’ll need to succeed in the industry for years to come. They need your talent and perspective, so come tell your story!
- The Program takes place at Nickelodeon Animation Studio in Burbank, California. Writers who are accepted will need to relocate to the LA area. Roundtrip airfare and one month’s furnished accommodations are provided. However, all transportation (once in LA) and any moving costs (of personal effects) are the individual writer’s responsibility.
- You must be 18 years or older, and eligible to work in the United States to participate.
- A strong writing background is encouraged, but anyone with professional TV writing credits is no longer eligible for the Program.
All submissions must be completed by 11:59pm PST on August 1, 2022. No late submissions will be considered.
