The Native American Media Alliance, in partnership with the Cherokee Nation Film Office, announced on Tuesday the inaugural class of Native American Writers Seminar fellows.
The Native American Writers Seminar will be a multiday intensive offering professional and creative mentorship to accepted fellows who are new to writing for film and television, thus providing new access for Native Americans interested in breaking into writing for film and television.
“We are excited to welcome the first cohort of the Native American Writers Seminar,” said Jennifer Loren, director of Cherokee Nation Film Office and Original Content. “Each of the selected fellows can serve an integral role in creating and developing indispensable Native American content within television and film. It is an honor for our film office to partner with the Native American Media Alliance to provide necessary resources, mentoring and much more to support our shared endeavor to bring authentic Native representation throughout these industries.”
