From a media release:
The Pacific Screenwriting Program (PSP) launches a fellowship with the Toronto Screenwriting Conference, giving five BC writers the opportunity to forge new relationships and showcase their talent on a national scale.
â€œThe mission of the PSP is to provide professional development to BC screenwriters across the full range of seniority and experience.â€, said PSP Board Chair, Brian Hamilton. â€œWe are excited to partner with the Toronto Screenwriting Conference on this opportunity, which is ideally suited to mid-level BC writers looking to network with and learn from top screenwriters from across North America who come together to focus on their craft.â€
The May 4-5 event is a celebration of form and inspiration. â€œUnlike other screenwriting events, the attendees at this conference are working professionals looking to elevate their storytelling craft,â€ says Raila Gutman, PSP Program Director, â€œthe PSP strongly believes in the value this will bring to our five writers.â€
Professional screenwriters are invited toÂ applyÂ for one of five fellowships. Applicants must be able to show proof of BC residency. Successful applicants will receive full conference registration to the 2019 Toronto Screenwriting Conference, including flights, and three nightsâ€™ accommodation.
