The CBS Diversity Institute Writers Mentoring Program is now accepting applications.
The program welcomes aspiring writers, with a focus on candidates of color, to apply for the six-month session that will include mentorship opportunities with senior-level writers and producers and creative executives from CBS, The CW and Paramount TV. Participants will receive support to improve their writing skills and will receive career advice.
The application submission period runs March 1 through May 1, with the program scheduled to begin in September and run through next May. In the last five years, the program has had 33 graduates, with 17 of them branching into careers in episodic TV.
Application information is available at the program’s site at www.cbsdiversity.com.


  1. Having a role model is so vital in order to develop your self as an individual and professionally.
    It sounds like a great initiative! As the founder of a free global mentorship community – Mentory.com I provide support to mentorships with an initial agreement, process support and evaluation. Mentory is a community that facilitates the mentorship process from the initial match to the end.
    It can be quite difficult finding a mentor, because the relevant people in your own network might be to close to you. We all have mentor potential, and being a mentor also makes you a great protégé.
    But in the end it is all about chemistry. Good luck – hope your initiative will cultivate potential.
