The program will offer up to eight writers a one-week intensive workshop in Toronto in March 2011. Featuring lectures, guest speakers, screenings, and more, the workshop will launch the writers' development of their original script. After the workshop, each writer will partner with an experienced screenwriter mentor to hone their script and pitch, finishing the program with a polished calling card to the industry. In addition, one writer will be selected for a paid internship in a writers' room on a CTV conventional television or specialty service show.
