Saw this last week and have been trying to find the time to blog the link. Channel 4 have launched a new screenwriting scheme, 4Screenwriting.
"We are looking for 12 talented, original and diverse writers who currently have no broadcast credit but wish to write for television drama."
"The course will give you a chance to find out how TV drama, particularly Channel 4 TV drama, works, and to write, over a 5 month period, your own 1 hour pilot script for an original series or serial, working with an experienced script editor"
How to apply:
Applicants should submit by email a CV and one writing sample. This can be a screenplay, a stage play or radio play, minimum length 30 minutes (novels, treatments, short stories, unfinished screenplays and "shorts" are not acceptable).
The scripts should be original, not episodes of existing drama series.
Closing date November 1st 2011.
