The Global Talent Development at Univeral Pictures has officially launched their new Universal Writers Program. Formerly known as the Emerging Writers Fellowship, the program identifies experienced and up-and-coming 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 its audiences.

“We are a studio committed to discovering unique voices and developing writers on the cusp of breaking through,” said Peter Cramer, President, Production, Universal Pictures. “Although the breadth of the application process is expanding, these programs are designed to identify game-changing talent.”
