Coverfly Career Mentorship
A free 6-month mentorship with professional writers
An exclusive free mentorship program available to writers with a project that has placed on The Red List. Mentors include film and television writers with multiple credits at the showrunner and EP level for major networks and studios. Each month the mentor will select one writer from The Red List for six months of career mentorship.
The program will focus on career development over craft or writing. We hope to emphasize the importance balancing career/networking in addition to strong samples.
While the mentor will have set criteria, all writers who have appeared on The Red List are eligible. Make sure you are eligible by setting your projects to discoverable today!Make Your Projects Discoverable

About the Partnership
