Seed Funding Introduction and Workshop

Auckland - December 30th - Classic, Queen Street - 9am to 4pm.

The first call for applications for the NZWG Seed Grants, (worth $10k each) will go out this Friday the 29th of November.

The goal of this initiative is to create an opportunity for writers to experiment with new ideas, to provide development funding specifically for writers only and to find new, exciting projects.

This is an opportunity for writers to think big, to think beyond our shores, to be innovative, to be brilliant, and to be excited about the opportunity to receive some funding to create something they own.

NZWG are running this workshop to introduce and provide information on the NZWG Seed Grants initiative, the application requirements and how to create strong submissions.

If you are interested in applying for one of these grants then we highly recommend you attend.

Content will cover:

  • The goals and the intent of the initiative
  • Application criteria: requirements and rationale
  • Selection process
  • Key deliverables
  • Additional NZWG support services for script development
  • Treatments and how to write them
  • Writing script samples
  • Giving and receiving Notes
  • Re-writing

There will be an open Q and A on all of the above at the end of the day.

Cost: $40

Presenter: Steven Gannaway NZWG Executive Director
