TAPS Writers’ Workshops

"TAPS is a charitable organisation established to run courses designed to nurture the best in up-and-coming film and television writing talent.

The courses consist of two modules: a weekend workshop led by industry professionals and a filmed showcase. The showcases are performed readings filmed with a professional cast, producer, director and technical crew in a professional television studio environment. The results are edited, again by an industry professional editor, and distributed on DVD to our network of active industry contacts. Our goal is to promote and support the writer, not just their work.

We are now accepting entries for our 2006/7 season, Full Length Script Development Course and Television Sitcom Course. This season will also see the launch of our ITV-backed Nations and Regions Courses, focusing on uncovering new writing talent from around the U.K., as well as our Continuing Series Course which will show established writers how to work within the format of an ongoing 60-minute series.

Please see the website http://www.tapsnet.org for downloadable course packs including full course information and application forms. "
