Wellington screenwriters residency applications open

Posted Wednesday 17 Jan 2018

Here's a great opportunity for screenwriters in the capital: producer Vicki Pope and director Rob Sarkies have partnered with Wellington's Toi P?neke Art Centre to offer a 12-week residency for a Wellington-based screenwriter. To apply, you'll need to have a feature film script at a stage that will benefit from development. The resident writer will get a studio space, a small stipend, plus development input from Pope and Sarkies. Pope says she's "thrilled" because "these things can be the difference between a writer being able to work, or not."
The deadline is 16 February so get get cracking and apply!
