“The Summit schedule was amazing. I knew I would learn a lot, but I could never have anticipated such personal commitment and connection from Summit mentors. I was especially surprised by the friendships I made with other writers. We have become emotionally invested in each other in a way I couldn’t imagine and I truly feel like I’m part of this special community. 

How many people can say they sang “Summer Lovin’” with the Director of Grease and the fabulous former President of Paramount Pictures?
