Sesame Street Writers’ Room is a new fellowship opportunity from the creators of Sesame Street. Who is it for? New writers from underrepresented racial backgrounds. Sesame Street has always represented diversity on screen and this is a behind-the-screen opportunity for people of any of these groups: Asian, Pacific Islander, Black, Hispanic, Native American, Middle Eastern, or multiracial (two or more races, which may include white).
