Writing workshops for BME writers pursuing a TV writing career

Issue date: 07 November 2018

The University of the West of England (UWE Bristol) is delighted to offer a series of workshops, designed for BME performance writers looking to tell their story in the TV industry. The need for exciting, diverse voices and powerful stories in the media has never been greater, and the course has been designed to enhance TV writing skills and support writers to take the next step in their careers.

Workshops will focus on advanced approaches to tone, voice and engaging character development in television writing, increasing productivity as a writer, and how to work in and run writers' rooms.

Sean Robert Daniels, experienced TV and feature film screenwriter, will be leading the free course, scheduled for evenings and weekends and continuing until January 2019.

“We're hoping to find some fantastic local talent and give them the boost they need to break into TV,” said Sean.“I'm really looking forward to reading the submissions, working with the writers and hearing their stories.”

Applications are now invited from all BME performance writers residing in, or close to, the greater Bristol area or South Wales. Writers should have had a least one script professionally produced for film, television or theatre, and will need to submit a single script of at least 15 pages as a writing sample in order to be considered for the course.

For more information, or to submit your application, please contact sean2.daniels@uwe.ac.uk. The closing date for submissions is midnight on 19 November 2018.
