The Writers Guild of Canada (WGC) and Bell Media are calling for
applications from western Canada to the Bell Media Diverse Screenwriters
Program. The western Canada session of the Program will take place in
Vancouver in December 2011.
Designed to bring more diverse writers into the talent pool of Canadian
screenwriting, the program offers emerging and mid-career writers from
diverse backgrounds the chance to hone the skills they need to become
successful professional screenwriters. And one writer will come out of the
program with a paid internship on a Bell Media TV series.
The Deadline for application is September 6, 2011.
(Note: The Program will run a session for Eastern Canada in Toronto in the
spring of 2012. Application call coming early fall 2011.)
