MIDPOINT Writers' Room Ireland 2021

Screen Skillnet


Tailored specifically for Screen Skillnet, MIDPOINT Writers' Room Ireland is an online series-oriented 9-day training program aimed at Irish writers.

The program is designed to train specialized skills and offer practical knowledge about the organization of a writers’ room.

The individual participants, entering the program as talents looking into enhancing their craft and writing skills, will get acquainted with the structure, hierarchy and processes running in a writers’ room from two different perspectives: of a procedural and a serialized show. Theoretical lectures and plotting exercises will be offered alongside the simulation.

The program’s graduates will acquire knowledge and skills connected to the processes occurring during scripted series writing, such as creative teamwork, joint brainstorming, and creating or following one unified narrative voice and vision as well as the structure of a series episode itself.
