Screenworks’ Writing for TV Intensive is a 2 day professional development workshop designed to give regional writers the opportunity to observe the process, techniques and dynamics of developing a TV drama in a writers room environment.

The intensive is being held on Friday 15 and Saturday 16 June at Linneaus Estate in Byron Bay.

Applications are open until 17 May 2018. Selected applicants will be notified by Friday 1 June 2018.

Presented by Screenwriter/Story Producer Alexa Wyatt and Producer/Director Karl Zwicky, this workshop will give selected applicants the opportunity to participate in story and character development for a TV drama as a mini bible and pitch documents are developed for the TV comedy drama Win for ABC TV.

Selected applicants will also participate in a consultation with a guest speaker, where they will receive advice to assist in the development of their own scripts.

This workshop is most relevant to early-career regionally based writers who have some experience in writing drama and an ambition to write drama for TV. This workshop will help writers to understand how to prepare a mini bible for a TV drama and how to prepare for the opportunities in television writers’ rooms.
