Welcome from Our Artistic Director, Killer Films' Christine Vachon
It's official! We've opened the doors to The Stony Brook Manhattan Center for Creative Writing and Film on 8th Avenue in midtown Manhattan — a one-of-a-kind community of filmmakers, writers, and storytellers — and we're pleased to announce that our MFA in FIlm program will now include Television Writing .
WELCOME FROM PROGRAM DIRECTOR
Located at Stony Brook's new Manhattan Center for Creative Writing and Film, and true to our platform-agnostic mission, Southampton Arts’ MFA Program in Film grows out of the almost 40-year history of the Southampton Summer Writers Conference, branching off of long-established programs in creative writing, and offering classes in screenwriting, tv writing, directing and producing at our facility at 535 8th Avenue in Manhattan and at Stony Brook Southampton.
Through small collaborative workshops designed to mimic professional writers rooms, intensive one-on-one advisement and supporting classes with industry professionals, Stony Brook's TV Writing electives will prepare you to build the professional TV writing portfolio that can launch your career in a field that is not only in a golden age of creativity but also of opportunity.
