Humanitas is looking for writers

April 29, 2022

Posted by Margarita Sanabria

Humanitas welcomes submissions of opinion articles, listicles, and reviews on a variety of topics for publication on our online blog.


n 1973, Fr. Ellwood “Bud” Kieser, C.S.P. went for a swim in the Pacific Ocean and “got a brilliant idea” to change the television landscape, which, he believed, was not fulfilling its potential to both entertain and uplift audiences.

To encourage the entertainment industry to enhance the lives of its viewers, he built a broad coalition to create the Humanitas Prizes, which emphasized the role of the writers. He believed that, while film and television are collaborative mediums, the passion, intellect, and point of view of the writer is always the defining creative force of any project.

“Whatever we can do to empower, enrich, and support writers, we should do because it is writers who show us where we’ve been and where we are going as a culture,” Kieser said, “and that is a journey we need to explore richly and deeply with writers leading the way.”
