The Episodic Writers program of the Oxbelly Retreat brings together eight promising writers developing their first original series and who are interested in utilizing the collaborative format of a writers’ room to advance their pilot scripts.
The core of the program is a series of workshops led by experienced screenwriters and showrunners, equally dedicated to experimentation and the great possibilities of the episodic medium.
The Episodic Writers program is led by Program Director Jörg Winger with Program Advisor Jen Blake. The Oxbelly Retreat is held at Costa Navarino in historic Messinia, Greece. There is no cost to apply and all expenses for fellows are covered.
The Episodic Writers program is open to writers applying with their first original series project. The main criteria of selection are quality of writing and strength & originality of the idea.
