Channel 4 Northern Talent Network: Script Hubs


We are establishing three Script Hubs in Newcastle upon Tyne, Bradford and Online to provide peer support and networking. The Script Hubs will consist of four facilitated peer group sessions and two workshops across a five-month period. Writers must be prepared to engage in group activities and learn from professionals as they develop their work.

The sessions will take place between July 2024 and November 2024. Writers must have some experience writing scripts or be practising in another form, such as fiction or poetry, but do not need to have a commission. All members of the group should be willing to work collaboratively and looking to take their career in TV forward.

Participation is by application. Applications will open from Tuesday 23 April – Tuesday 4 June.

Apply here by 4 June

Once the facilitated sessions and workshops are complete, the aim is that the three groups will continue to meet as self-directed peer groups, maintaining a continuing relationship with New Writing North.
