At the core of the Pacific Screenwriting Program is a full-time 15 week curriculum that polishes and prepares candidates for an entry-level writer position on a series.

Every term, up to six committed writers receive the necessary support to expand their portfolio and pursue opportunities in the evolving TV marketplace. Throughout the program, participants hone their craft, strengthen their collaboration and presentation skills, and obtain a deeper understanding of BC’s television industry and how to market themselves within it. Through workshops, events and mentoring, candidates will also be connected with key industry professionals, including senior screenwriters, producers, and agents.

Selection Process
All complete applications submitted by the (11:59 pm) September 2, 2022 deadline will be reviewed by a selection committee comprised of industry professionals.

Applicants who are not chosen to advance to the interview stage will be notified by email. Unfortunately, we will not be able to provide feedback on unsuccessful applications.

Shortlisted applicants will be contacted by phone to confirm their interview date and time. We will make every effort to conduct interviews in person; where this is not possible, interviews will take place via video call. After all interviews have been conducted, the selection committee will determine which candidates will be best suited to the program, and will notify all remaining candidates of their decision.
