NAMIC Writers' Workshops are an extraordinary two-day forum designed to give participants the opportunity to hone their craft and learn the essentials of creating, packaging and selling their product. The Fall 2009 program will be highlighted by the launch of a new tutorial on writing for the digital entertainment space. A panel of communications industry creative executives will select a total of 20 writers of color to participate, free of charge, in the program -- made possible by the generous support of the Walter Kaitz Foundation.

"Since its inception, the NAMIC Writers' Workshop series has provided a unique educational platform for writers of color to advance their artistic talent and knowledge of the business," said Kathy Johnson, president, NAMIC. "We are thrilled to continue facilitating the workshop series and look forward to assisting a new group of diverse creators in delivering their unique voices to our industry."

NAMIC's lead facilitator for the Writers' Workshop series, Carole Kirschner, will be at the helm of the Fall 2009 session. A veteran television executive, Kirschner is also the architect of the CBS Diversity Institute Writers Mentoring Program. The NAMIC Fall 2009 Writers' Workshop will feature a rich agenda highlighted by the professional evaluation of submitted material; one-on-one meetings with a professional script analyst to review coverage; classes taught by successful, working writers; extensive business and self-marketing education, and more.
