Screen Skillnet announces MIDPOINT Writers' Room course set to commence in the New Year
27 Nov 2020 : News Desk
Midpoint Writers’ Room
In collaboration with Screen Skillnet, MIDPOINT Writers´ Room – Ireland is an online, series-oriented 9-day training program aimed at mid-level Irish writers with at least 4 x paid professional writing credits, who have not had their own original series commissioned, and have not been hired as a writer in a writers’ room to date.

MIDPOINT Institute is an international audiovisual training and networking institution organizing a wide range of programs focused on script and project development, post-production, and the education of aspiring script consultants and development executives.

The program is designed to offer practical knowledge and training in the specialized skills of the organization of a writers’ room and will run under the leadership of two world-renowned tutors Gabor Krigler (Golden Life) and Ben Morris (Mr. Selfridge, Bancroft).

The 9-day simulation will replicate the creative atmosphere of a writer’s room through an interactive collaborative online platform and will be complemented by theoretical lectures.

Upon completing the training, participants will have a better understanding of the structure, hierarchy, and processes involved in a writers’ room (such as creative teamwork, joint brainstorming, and creating or following one unified narrative voice and vision for a TV series).

The deadline to apply online is 5pm on Tuesday, December 8th.

Please note places on this course are limited to 6 participants so only applicants that fit the participant profile will be considered.  All applicants will be notified of the status of their application on December 9th.

Successful applicants must be available for an initial 90minute induction session on Friday, December 11th from 2pm – 3.30 pm to get an overview of the programme from the MIDPOINT team.
