The Native American Media Alliance announced the recipients of the third Annual Native American Writers Accelerator Grant. With support from Netflix, the organization launched the Native American Writer Accelerator Grant for fellows from their highly successful TV writers lab.
“This grant gives Native American writers the ability to develop their careers as the industry enters another challenging era.” declared Ian Skorodin, Director of Strategy for the Native American Media Alliance. “Previous grantees have found great success in staffing, producing independent work and finding their artistic voice.”
Created to give new opportunities to Native American writers, the Native American Writer Accelerator Grant provides $10,000 grants and professional support to help recipients develop their craft and bolster their writing careers. In its third year, the accelerator will award 12 Native American writers from the 8th Annual Native American TV Writers Lab.
The accelerator is designed to encourage Native American writers to expand on their current opportunities. The collaboration with Netflix on the Native American Writer Accelerator Grant is part of Netflix’s Fund for Creative Equity.
