Just popping in during this crazy-busy season with another upcoming opportunity.
NBC’s Writers on the Verge (WOTV) program lasts 12 weeks and is designed to boost the skills of writers who are almost ready to write for TV– hence the “on the verge” part. While getting accepted does not guarantee a writing job, polishing your skills while networking with people in the industry can’t hurt, right? Past graduates have gone on to land gigs writing for Graceland, White Collar and others.
The submission period for this opens May 1, 2015, but since it’s an enormous opportunity, and one of the “audition” requirements is to have written a properly formatted screenplay, it seemed a good idea to put this out now to give you more time to edit, polish, etc.
You can learn more about the program by clicking the link above and you can stay up to date on other WOTV announcements by following NBC’s Writers on the Verge on Facebook.
Good luck, and happy writing!
