As a career writer, I’m always looking for ways in which to expand my abilities. As televisions writing was my original inspiration from which I pursued publication, it seems it would be coming full circle to learn more about it.
I’m teaching Broadcast Writing & Dramatic Writing courses this summer at Canada’s biggest continuing education school at Ryerson University – The Chang School. What I would take away from your seminar are experiences to talk about in class, from some of the best writers in the industry!
I’ve been writing for over thirty years but still have the ‘aspiring’ novelist title. I can’t think of a better seminar to add some spark to my writing prowess.
I am an aspiring young writer with no clue where to start. I’m hoping this seminar could give me the kick in the ass I need, clues as to which direction to head and tools in which to hone my craft… Also a free lunch would be nice.
As a writer, actor and playwright, I’ve been cracking the whip on myself to learn the ropes of TV writing. Having read Elephant Bucks and Crafty TV writing, and written a Spec for Parks and Rec and The Big Bang Theory, I’d like to learn more about the actual breaking of stories and structuring episodes from a working TV writer. I’m particularly interested in the ongoing creation of fresh new ideas for a series while still staying true to a format or voice (as with House). Since I’m spending Saturday at a Pitching workshop, I think this would be the perfect addition to my high octane weekend of learning. (Also, I’m a lot of fun and I’ll bring chocolate.)
I would love to attend this seminar to learn the ins and outs of television writing from someone who has been on a successful show. Given the mix of procedural and character-driven story lines on House, I’m sure this seminar will be packed with useful information!
This sounds like a great event. Next month I will be attending the Banff Media Festival as one of five aspiring writers selected to participate in the Global Writers Apprentice Program. The program provides access to broadcasters, executive producers, show runners and agents, and, following that, a four week apprenticeship in the writing room on an existing Canadian series. From the description of your program, I know that the lessons learned this Sunday (whether its regarding pitching, working in the room, developing my own series, etc.) will be put to use immediately as I enter the exciting adventure before me.
Thanks so much for your entries (and everyone on Twitter too). Garfield was randomly selected as the winner – congratulations to him!
