Writers On The Verge
Writers On The Verge is a 12-week program focused on polishing and preparing writers for staff writer positions on television shows. Participants learn how to further refine already prominent television storytelling skills and how to better prepare for staffing meetings. They will also gain a deeper understanding of the primetime television viewer, the business dimensions of television and the significance of working in a collaborative team environment. The program focuses on all areas of writing, presentation and networking. The writers will be given the chance to interact with many different types of industry players from network executives to showrunners to agents and will get valuable feedback on their work and pitch style. Writing assignments on an NBC television show may be available after successful completion of the program but are not a guarantee.
