Experience what it is like to be part of a Writers Room


Applications have opened for the next Scribe Writers Room Workshop, which will start on the 4th March – the group will meet for 17 weeks on  Monday evenings from 19h00 – 22h00 in Melville Johannesburg. The cost is only R200.00 per week.  (To facilitate cash flow – pay each week.)


Gain practical writing knowledge that is impossible to obtain outside of a writer’s room.



Members of the workshop will together create a television series from scratch, starting only with a basic brief. They will develop, genré, story and characters, before designing the series and writing a pilot episode. They are guided through the process by a workshop facilitator who acts as the Head Writer and Show Runner.

“… was a great learning curve. I have gained skills and tools that will help me develop my own concepts.”


“…the best part – creating characters, writing scenes and finally comparing and debating on them the following week – the arguing part was the most interesting.”


“I loved the fact that we had older writers, younger writers, different races and genders and a variety of points of view in the same room.”
