Screen West Midlands and The Script Factory are looking to recruit eight writers (or writing teams) for the second intake of the Writers' Passage programme.
Writers selected for the programme will have the opportunity to workshop their scripts with actors, get expert teaching on story structure and screenwriting craft, be inspired by masterclasses at the screenwriting festival, SCENE, and work one-to-one with a script editor through three re-drafts. The aim of this course is to prepare all participants to be launched as professional writers within the UK film industry.
At the end of the programme each writer will receive valuable feedback on their project from some of the most respected individuals currently working in film. Entry is only open to writers who live or work within the West Midlands and have completed a first draft screenplay.
The deadline for submissions is Friday 17 December 2004.
Full details are available from The Script Factory.
