The Molly of Denali Scriptwriting Fellowship is a WGBH program to engage and collaborate with writers from Alaska Native communities in the production of the children’s series Molly of Denali. The organizer hopes that fellows can make a meaningful impact on the way Native people are represented on-screen.
Funded by the Corporation for Public Broadcasting and supported by PBS, the Scriptwriting Fellowship engages promising Alaska Native writers to develop narratives based on their own experiences and gives them the opportunity to hear from children’s media executives and understand how to get their work made for public media.
The five-day Fellowship is also part of a larger effort to engage Alaska Native/Native American people into all aspects of the production of the series.
