Each week we look through our pile of writing opportunities to pick out one we think is particularly worth your time. It could be an innovative brief, great prize money, a high-profile company, or just plain fun.
This week’s pick: Channel 4 Scriptwriting Course
Description: The Channel 4 Screenwriting Course offers an introduction to writing for television to 12 writers new to the medium, supporting them in writing an original drama script and paying them a fee to support their involvement.
So, what’s so great about it? We realise that our recent picks have featured quite a few screenwriting opportunities, but this one was too good to pass up! The course, which has been running successfully for several years, provides detailed mentorship for the process of writing a television drama, alongside industry networking. On top of that, the course pays you to attend, in return for a first option on your programme. Selected writers need to ensure they’re free for the intensive course weekends, so check out the full details and send in your application by 30 October if you want to take part!
