About

One of MIDPOINT Institute's programs dedicated to scripted series writing and development, the Writers’ Room  is designed to train specialized writing skills and offer practical knowledge about the organization of a writers’ room.

The one-off event spans over 4 training days and consists of lectures and simulation of a writers’ room, including plotting and writing exercises, and is aimed at writers and producers with the ambition of becoming hired writers’ room members or showrunners, without a particular project in development. The program runs in the English language.

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. 

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.

The program's schedule and the form of the organization inevitably depend on the development of the coronavirus pandemic situation.
