Join Denis McGrath for a free writing workshop and learn more about the CFC's CBC Prime Time Television Program!

Writer, CFC Alumnus and 2011 Executive Producer in Residence Denis McGrath ('01) ("XIII", "Less Than Kind", "The Border") will lead a workshop on writing for television. Denis will walk participants through the process of getting an episode of the series on the air – from collaboration and brainstorming in the story room, to beatsheets, outlines and script drafts.

This workshop is offered by the CFC's CBC Prime Time Television Program, and after the workshop, we will offer an information session about the program.
