Curtis Brown is inviting applications for scholarship enabling one writer to join them in London for its Writing An Original TV Drama Serial course, which runs from 10 Oct 2022 to 27 Feb 2023.

One talented writer of colour with limited financial means will receive a fully paid place on the course, led by award-winning writer, producer and director Jamie Nuttgens, with tutorials given by script editor Clare Alan and six masterclasses with leading TV professionals.

The scholarship winner will be given a travel stipend (up to the value of £250) to contribute to the cost of traveling to attend classes in central London.

The scholar will also receive a digital download of the latest version of the premier screenwriting software Final Draft (worth £181).

This scholarship is part of the Curtis Brown Breakthrough Writers’ Programme, a major outreach programme which offers opportunities to under-represented writers. It is keen to promote diversity in its student groups and to enable talented writers to join our courses who it might not otherwise have heard from.

You don’t need a degree or any experience of the TV industry to apply for this scholarship. What is needed is a have good idea, the desire to write television drama and to learn.
