Writing For TV - An Introduction to writing for Continuing Drama Series


A workshop for anyone who has an interest in writing for continuing drama. If they’ve had some dramatic writing experience that would be helpful but not essential.

This two day workshop will cover an industry overview in television writing with a practical focus on writing for continuing drama / soap

shows like Emmerdale / Eastenders / Holby / Casualty

The first day will be a overview of the Continuing Drama Series editorial process and then a practical session on writing the script.

The second day will be an overview of the industry and then looking at the different approaches to getting your foot in the door plus some resources for onward study.
