Course Description

Raw Talent, New Voices Television is where the vast majority of practising screenwriters work and where there is an abundance of writing slots and creative opportunities. This award has been developed in close collaboration with the television Industry and wholly with its screenwriting needs in mind. Students will be taught by both academic staff and top TV scriptwriting practitioners. This programme forges an exciting new partnership between industry and education to produce the next generation of market-ready script writers for the 21st Century. Crucially, graduates will be capable of script development within the constraints and opportunities presented by a competitive global market for television drama. Through this Masters, students will gain knowledge and skills that are essential to succeeding in contemporary television markets. We aim to maximise employment opportunities for students through close exposure to the industry, to some of its most successful practitioners and to their professional practice in action. However, 'skills only' training, without opportunities to reflect critically upon creative processes and dynamics, upon industry imperatives and synthesis of the relationship between these into a sustainable model of professional action, would not enable students to become flexible and independently minded TV scriptwriters. In other words, students will not only know 'how' but also crucially 'why'. Visit our blog at: http:caledonianblogs.nettvfictionwriting
