TV Writing Workshop With Ins Choi

This free two day workshop seeks to demystify the process of writing for television by leading participants through the nuts and bolts of a TV writer’s room. Ins Choi will lead nine participants through the process of pitching ideas, developing stories, outlining and scripting. This collaborative and fun workshop provides participants with the tools and some of the feels of a writer’s room. Previously chosen participants come from the world of playwriting, sketch comedy, improv, stand up, fiction and screenwriting. Nine participants will be chosen and must be available for both days as the work is cumulative.

This workshop will take place on June 21 and 22, 10AM–5PM both days at Reel Asian’s office, 401 Richmond St W, suite 448. To be eligible, applicants must self-identify as being of Asian or part Asian heritage. The goal is to provide development opportunities to this under-represented group.
