It’s hard enough turning your thoughts into words, but how do you turn your words into a multimillion-dollar production that beams into the homes of people around the world? Join Matt Okine – comedian, actor, showrunner and co-writer of the hit Aussie series The Other Guy and author of Being Black ’n Chicken, and Chips – for a half-day workshop that tackles the process of writing for TV, from conception to casting, sketches to serials, editing to ADR, and everything in between. 

Sydney Writers’ Festival is sponsoring one place per workshop for writers who may not otherwise be able to participate. Find more information and an online application form here.
