Disney has awarded Writers’ Program student Thomas Wong a 2009 Writing Fellowship. During the paid, year-long program, Thomas will have the opportunity to work with executives and be staffed on a Disney/ABC Television show. Over 1300 people applied for the 19th Annual Writing Fellowship, of which eight will participate.
Thomas took four classes with the Writers’ Program in 2008, including Writing the One-Hour Drama and Writing the Half-Hour Comedy. “I wrote two scripts through UCLA Extension—a Brothers and Sisters spec with Greg Elliot and a Samantha Who? with Phil Kellard. I had a fantastic experience in the Writers’ Program. The classes were well-organized and the teachers were knowledgeable and extremely approachable.”
