    Good morning. He’s simply got the instinct for being unhappy highly developed. Help me! I find sites on the topic: Best Lesbian Sites. I found only this – lesbian action.

    @Sara Ann: the Production Associates Program is different from the Writer’s Fellowship and the Production Associates Program deadline is April 24. The Writer’s Fellowship deadline hasn’t been announced but will likely be somewhere between July and August.

    I noticed this on Jen’s email as well: if you follow the link for the ABC fellowship, the site says the dates for the 2010 fellowship (the next one) will be posted this summer. I’m not sure where she got April 24 from.
