Course Profile:

This seminar in association with The Writers Guild of Ireland will consist of a panel of three writers who have extensive experience writing for more than one sector in the Irish industry. Between them they have written many successful stage plays, television drama series, radio plays, feature films and web series.

The panel will address the overall question as to whether Irish scriptwriters can make a living writing scripts for the Irish industry. Within this topic, they will give advice on how best to work across multiple sectors; whether multi-sector writing beats specialisation in one sector; whether different sectors demand different skill sets and how to actually pay the bills while you’re doing all of this!

The panel will share their experience and advice on these issues and will answer participants’ questions throughout.

Chair/Moderator: David Kavanagh, CEO of the Writers’ Guild of Ireland.

Participant Profile:

This seminar is aimed at scriptwriters who are currently writing for the Irish industry or who have done so in the past, but who would have primarily written for one sector to date, and would like to broaden their scope.
