Current UC Riverside Creative Writing for the Performing Arts MFA screenwriter Kimberly Guerrero was one of three national finalists in the College Fellowship category honored by the Humanitas Foundation on February 11 at the Directors Guild in Hollywood.

Writers from the larger Hollywood film and television community spoke eloquently about why we write and about the power we have to change opinions, to reflect the society we wish to become and to spearhead concrete social change.
The Humanitas Prize was created in 1974 by Father Ellwood “Bud” Kieser to “celebrate film and television programs that affirm the dignity of the human person, explore the meaning of life, enlighten the use of human freedom and reveal to each person our common humanity.”
Kimberly’s one-hour television pilot CHASING ARROWS was developed in the CWPA 267 class (Writing for Television: Creating the One-Hour Drama) here at UCR last year. The teleplay is the saga of Indigenous American twin sisters caught in an exciting and enlightening time-travel adventure.
At the Humanitas Prize awards ceremony, writers from the larger Hollywood film and television community spoke eloquently about why we write and about the power we have to change opinions, to reflect the society we wish to become and to spearhead concrete social change.
It truly was an honor to have Kimberly represent UCR in such esteemed and august company.
