503Studio Masterclass: Making the Move Into Writing For TV, Rose Lewenstein
Rose Lewenstein will discuss her journey from writing for theatre into writing for TV, including the difference between the two processes and what to expect when you’re getting into the industry.
Participants will be offered the opportunity to send in specific questions relating to areas they would like to hear discussed in the session and these questions will be used as part of the initial discussion, prior to a further open Q&A where Rose can respond to questions arising from the session itself.
