Announcing the 2017 Fellowship to theOffice
by TVWriter™ Press Service
Know how we’re always saying that if you want to be in the Biz you should live in L.A.? Well, here’s an example of what we’re talking about.
If you’re looking for the perfect place to leave the distractions of life behind and kick your productivity into overdrive, enter now to win a FREE 6-Month Premium Membership to theOffice. (Yep, that’s the name. We’d put a (sic) after it, but that just makes us feel pompous.)
theOffice is a quiet, communal workspace on 26th Street in Santa Monica. It’s one of the country’s premiere co-working spaces, fostering creativity and productivity in a zen, distraction-free environment for over 13 years.
The membership roster consists of A-list screenwriters, authors, journalists and other creatives. Current and charter members include JJ Abrams, Paul Feig, Chris Weitz, Matthew Carnahan, Clark Gregg, Gigi Levangie Grazer, Jen Celotta and many more.
Dozens of screenplays and novels have been written there. No conference rooms. No phone calls. No conversation. It’s where serious writers go to get it done.
Wade Gasque, manager at theOffice, says:
As a writer myself, I’ve done the coffee shop shuffle. I know how hard it is to find somewhere dependable to work, somewhere without the distractions of home, somewhere quiet and inspiring where I can quickly get into the zone and get words on the page. That’s precisely what we offer here at theOffice. But because many up-and-coming writers might not have the dedicated funds for a monthly writing space like theOffice, we started offering a free fellowship a few years back. The fellowship is essentially a 6-month Premium Membership to theOffice. You get your own door code to access the space at all hours so you can get as much done as you can for the next six months. We’re looking for up-and-coming writers of talent who are dedicated to their craft.
This fellowship is completely free to enter, but the deadline is drawing near. Apply by August 8th or you’re out of luck. All of the details are at www.theOfficeFellowship.com including info on this year’s judges – Mark Cullen, Nicole LaPorte and David Scarpa.
