Screen

Workshops, networking events, short courses, long courses!

As well as one-off events, EAT runs screenwriters groups in blocks through most of the year. The blocks vary in length from 6-10 weeks. They are usually 2 hours fortnightly (6.30-8.30pm on a week night). The courses are primarily workshop-based with participants analysing and giving feedback on each others work while learning how to offer feedback and integrate feedback into their own work. Courses also aim to improve participants’ writing and understanding of the business side of screenwriting.

Venue: Toi Poneke Arts Centre, 61 Abel Smith st, Te Aro, Wellington
