2008 Palm Springs International ShortFest
Submission deadline Aug. 8


The NICKELODEON WRITER'S LAB is a one day, by invitation only event designed to prepare applicants for submission to the
Nickelodeon Writing Fellowship (NWF)

Writing for television is a rewarding and creative outlet and a lucrative career path that enables writers to continually develop and fine-tune their writing skills. The NWF serves to attract and develop writers of diverse backgrounds and experiences for staff positions on Nickelodeon Network productions.

Lab applicants will be asked to submit a spec script on any half-hour comedic television series currently in production on primetime network or cable. Spec scripts will be reviewed by Nickelodeon executives who select up to 25 candidates to participate in the Writer's Lab at the Palm Springs International Shortfest in Palm Springs, Calif. on Saturday, August 23, 2008.

Selected candidates will have one-on-one time with Nick executives, receive feedback on their scripts during the Lab and will then be required to submit to the 2009 Nickelodeon Writing Fellowship program. Application forms and submission criteria are available by clicking on the pdf forms below.
