A new talent initiative that will offer up to six successful applicants the opportunity for a year long programme of professional development.
This fellowship, for each writer, will include a bursary of £22,568 to write a spec script for an original idea over the course of a year, monthly development events and workshops, and a paid placement in a writers room of a Netflix or Sky series.
The Fellowship aims to increase the diversity of voices among new writers. It is a one year programme that provides training, mentoring and other support to Black and Asian writers and writers from other racial and ethnic backgrounds that are under-represented in the high end TV and film industry. They’re looking for dedicated writers with an authentic and original voice in all scripted genres, so we’ll need to see an example of your work – this means submitting a script.
