Have you ever speculated what happens in a writer’s room? Are you curious about how decisions get made about story, episode structure and character arcs? Do you want to mingle with fellow writers, both more and less experienced than yourself?
SIGN UP HERE
If you want to develop your ability to think visually and learn to collaborate whilst creating stories, designing outlines and writing a screenplay, The Scribe Writers Room Workshop is for you. It is an initiative designed to provide insight, resources, development opportunities and experience for screenwriters of diverse backgrounds and perspectives.
Members of each workshop will together create a television series from scratch, starting only with a basic brief. They will develop, genre, story and characters, before writing a pilot episode. They are guided through the process by a head writer and workshop facilitator. Alumni of the Scribe Writers Room Workshops leave with this valuable and worthwhile addition to their CV, having gained practical experience that is impossible to obtain outside of a writer’s room.
Please note that Scribe Writers Room Workshops are a group activity and when you apply to you must be available and willing to make a serious long-term commitment to the other writers participating in the workshop. You are expected to attend and contribute every week, and there will be ‘homework’ to complete from time to time. Writers are expected to work in one of the standard professional writing software programmes such as Screenwriter, Final Draft or Trelby. Tea, coffee and snacks are provided.

PARTICIPANT SELECTION PROCESS
There is limited space in the workshops, and therefore applicants will be requested to supply more information before being selected/ placed in a workshop. We try to make each “room” as diverse as possible in as many ways as possible, mixing race, gender and experience.
