New Podcast: DePaul Alum Interviews Professionals with Liberal Arts Advanced Degrees Working Outside Their Fields of Study.

MAWP alum Jesse Butts has started a podcast,  The Work Seminar, devoted to liberal arts advanced degree holders considering work outside their fields of study.

Jesse writes: “In each episode, I interview MAs, MFAs, PhDs, and the like who’ve done exactly that. Some guests have migrated to adjacent fields, and others have landed in (seemingly) unrelated occupations. We explore their journeys from grad school to their new lines of work; reflect on work’s role in their lives, passion vs. practicality, and their philosophy of work; and share advice for listeners uncertain of what’s next.”

The show is available on all major podcast players, including Apple PodcastsSpotify, and Stitcher.

Apply for a Scriptwriting Workshop! Applications due November 12

The GBH Kids Scriptwriting Fellowship is a program designed to mentor early-career writers, who are members of underrepresented groups in the greater children’s media industry (including individuals of African American, Asian, Latinx/Hispanic, Native American, and Pacific Islander descent), in writing scripts for a GBH KIDS animated series focused on STEM learning. The goal is to diversify the pipeline of writers for both this show, and the greater children’s media industry with a hands-on learning experience in television writing for children and an opportunity for their scripts to be produced for this new series.

GBH Kids is looking for 5 exceptional scriptwriting fellows to participate in our 4-month writing workshop. They are accepting applications until Friday, November 12th at 5pm EST.
