Channel 4’s TV Drama New Writers Scheme (West and South West) is a unique opportunity to gain the skills needed to forge a successful writing career and tell stories which reflect the diversity and creativity of the West and South West of England. Ahead of the deadline on 12th June, C4 are hosting a Q&A session for applicants.
Join Channel 4 representatives at 1pm on Friday 27th May for a Q&A Webinar to find out more about the scheme and ask any questions you may have.
This is an online webinar event, and captions will be provided. If you have any questions or require adjustments to attend please email 4Skills@channel4.co.uk
Over 6 months, you will benefit from expert industry training, mentoring and introductions to scripted drama production companies. You must be available to attend training days in Bristol once a month (expenses will be paid). Within 6-9 months of completing the scheme, submit a first draft script for feedback from Channel 4’s Drama Commissioning Editor, Gwawr Lloyd.
This scheme is targeted at emerging writers from the West and South West of England. You will build your skills, knowledge and networks to develop and write scripts reflecting the lived experience of people in this region, with a particular focus on diverse perspectives.
