Developed and run in close association with ITV Wales and ITV Yorkshire, this course is designed to kick-start your career in television. Split between theoretical work, studying an episode of Emmerdale, and practical work on your own ideas, the introductory workshop will give you an amazing understanding of the realities of television writing. A two-month distance-mentoring session follows, challenging you to develop an original 23-minute piece of television drama. The best will be produced and filmed on the Emmerdale sets by a professional cast and crew.
