Submissions are open for the 3rd Annual Native American TV Writers Lab, which is sponsored this year in part by HBO.

Designed to address the lack of Native American writers in primetime network TV, the Lab is an intensive scriptwriters workshop that prepares Native Americans for writing careers at major television networks.

The five-week lab consists of group discussions, one-on one-meetings and workshops, and features an introduction to the workings of a network television writers room.

To learn more about the workshop and submissions requirements, check out the L.A. Skins Fest website.  The application deadline is March 2.
