Lisa Seidman is an Emmy Award-winning television writer and a tireless champion for helping college students pursue careers in writing.
Lisa and her family know that writing can be a challenging field to enter and she believes that those who are passionate about writing should be supported as they pursue their dreams. Higher education can open many doors in the industry, but the high costs mean that many students need assistance to afford a college degree.
