Please send your submission packets to email@example.com by Monday, August 15, 2022. You must also sign and return the submission agreement or we cannot read or consider your packet. You will receive this form once you submit your packet.
You can write your submission in whatever program you prefer, but please submit it as a PDF. It is very important that your name, email, phone number - any identifying information - is listed on the cover page (part 1) ONLY. This is because we will be removing the cover pages and reading all submissions blind.
1. Please include your resume and a brief cover letter, your contact info, as well as links to anything you’ve worked on that you’re proud of and would like to share. Keep this on a separate page as it will not be read along with your writing samples.
2. Write one comedic 2-to-3 page script about an epic, comedic fight between two or more NBA personalities that ideally mirrors or compliments real life drama. The script should feature heightened versions of NBA players and can or cannot be written with an anime-style in mind.
3. Submit 2 pieces of writing you have done previously. They can be sketches, short stories, listicles. Anything that shows off your personal sense of humor.
If you have questions, please email the above address.
