About

One of MIDPOINT’s programs dedicated to TV series writing and development, the Writers’ Room, is a sidebar module of the project-based 9-months long TV Launch and is designed to support the training of specialized skills and offer practical knowledge about the organization of a writers’ room.

The one-off event runs in 4 training days, and consists of lectures, plotting and writing training, and simulation of a writers’ room. The program runs in the English language.

The single 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 American and the European. 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 in TV series writing, such as creative team work, joint brainstorming, and creating or following one unified narrative voice and vision, as well as the structure of a TV series episode itself.
