WORKSHOPS

WHAT ARE SCRIBE WRITERS ROOM WORKSHOPS?

 

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?

If you want to develop your ability to think visually and learn to collaborate whilst creating stories, designing outlines and writing for both film and television, The Scribe Writers Room is an  initiative designed to provide insight, resources, development opportunities and experience to 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 Writersroom Workshops are a group activity and when you apply to you must be available and willing to make a serious 20 week 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 writing software programmes such as Screenwriter, Final Draft or Trelby. Tea, coffee and snacks are provided.

 

We reserve the right to postpone workshops due to any reason whatsoever.  However, if this occurs you will be given the opportunity to accept a full refund or attend the class at the next opportunity. Scribe Writers Room does not offer NQF qualifications in terms of the South African Further Education and Training Act (Act 16 of 2006)
