Channel 4 New Writers Scheme

Channel 4’s New Writers Scheme is a one-stop-shop for new writers with a burning desire to write TV drama. It is open to unrepresented new writers looking for their first writing credit. This scheme is aimed at those currently underrepresented in the TV industry. They are particularly keen to hear from Deaf and/or disabled people, ethnically diverse people and people from lower socioeconomic groups.

This development programme is targeted at emerging writers from the Nations & Regions, with three regional cohorts based in Bristol, Glasgow and Leeds.

Full details and apply via the Channel 4 Careers website

Deadline: Friday 1st March 2024 at midnight

They will be hosting a one hour online Q&A webinar for applicants on Monday 12th February at 1pm. To register for this event visit their website.
