Call for Submissions: 5th Annual Free 6-Month Fellowship to theOffice

Looking for a writer’s sanctuary? A place where you can leave the distractions of life behind and just sit down in peace to put words on the page? That’s what we offer here at theOffice – a quiet, communal workspace on the westside of Los Angeles. We have a roster filled with A-list screenwriters, novelists and more, but sometimes the cost of membership can be too much for up-and-coming writers. That’s why five years ago we started our free fellowship to theOffice. And we’re happy once again to offer it to you. Announcing our 5th Annual Free 6-Month Fellowship to theOffice. It works like this: You send us an example of your best piece of writing along with a paragraph or two explaining why this fellowship would help you. We select one winner who will receive 6 months of free 24/7* access to the space. This is equivalent to a Premium Membership, the highest level of membership we offer, worth upwards of $2500. Winner gets his/her own door code to the space with the ability to come and go even when staff isn’t here. You wanna write at 2AM on a Wednesday night? The space is all yours. You also get all the other perks of membership including unlimited, free coffee & tea, wifi, ergonomic workstations with Aeron chairs, a small reference library and all the peace and quiet you can handle. The fellowship starts May 1st and goes through October 31st, 2015. It is completely free to enter. Winner will be announced the last week of April. Contest is open to all new/aspiring/struggling writers who are looking to kick their productivity into overdrive. Think of this as your very own writer’s retreat right here in the city. Here’s what we need from you: An email with your contact information: Full name, phone, and email address. We will contact the winner via email. In the body of the email, please explain why you need this fellowship and what you hope to gain from it. (200 words or less, please) A 10 page .pdf writing sample of your work. Attach this to the email. Your best 10 pages. Do not submit pages that need to be set up or explained. Send 10 pages that stand alone. Only pdf submissions. All other attachments will be deleted. Email to: theOfficeFellowship(at)gmail(dot)com by April 15, 2015. That’s it. You’re done! Some important points to remember: Do your research on theOffice. Don’t submit if you’re not local, if you’re not sure you’ll be available, if you don’t like writing in a room with others. Be honest, if you live in Pasadena and won’t want to drive across town to write every day, then this fellowship isn’t for you. If you don’t flourish in...
