The Screen Nova Scotia Screenwriter Internship Program, presented in collaboration with the Writers Guild of Canada and the NS Department of Communities, Culture and Heritage, is a television writing training program designed to help emerging/mid-level screenwriters expand their network, sharpen their professional skills, and bring new perspectives and ideas to the writers’ rooms of television series in Canada.

This new program will connect Nova Scotian writers with some of Canada’s top showrunners and screenwriters through two-week internships in the writers’ room of Canadian TV series. Through participating in these rooms, NS writers will gain hands-on experience and practical knowledge to help them advance as writers of compelling scripts for Canadian television. Their experience will also make them ideal candidates for local producers who are looking for talent to develop projects here in the province.
