Call for Submissions: Episodic TV Writers Lab

The Episodic TV Writers’ Lab is a 4-month program designed to mentor and train BIPOC writers who are working towards getting their first job in a comedy or drama writing room. 

This program is for Indigenous, Black and racialized writers who are ready to be staffed and need an extra boost to finalize their sample and accelerate their career.

This is not a how-to-write a TV script program. Writers will be workshopping a completed first draft of a half-hour comedy or one-hour drama series pilot in order to bring it to polish. 

Participants get to experience a simulated writing room where they will learn the dynamics and unspoken rules of working in a writing room. Each writer is paired 1:1 with an established writer mentor throughout the program. Visit website for more information.


Writers who are Indigenous (First Nations, Inuits or Metis) and Black and racialized people with disabilities and/or 2SLGBTQIA+ are highly encouraged to apply. If you have any questions, please contact Hannah at programs@bipoctvandfilm.com.
