WFTV Event: Writers Meet Producers

8th November 2019 18:30

Friday 8 November | 18:30 – 21:00

The King & Queen Pub (upstairs function room)

1 Foley Street | Fitzrovia | London | W1W 6DL

 

**1 x PRODUCER slot remaining – Final Call**

*WRITERS slots SOLD OUT*

This event will be a structured speed-networking session for writers and producers in order to pitch their scripts.

Writers: Are you a new writer with few industry contacts, figuring out where to begin, facing the challenges of trying to get your script pitched? Or perhaps you’re an experienced writer looking for a few more contacts? Come along to speed networking to meet with multiple producers at one event who are keen to hear your pitch.

Producers: Are you looking for fresh female voices? Are you keen to hear about exciting new scripts without having to sit through lengthy pitches? Join us at our speed networking event where you might just end up discovering the next Killing Eve.

Upon arrival, participants will be given a name badge with their name, occupation and company. The structure of this event simulates speed dating where you will have 5 minutes to network, then a bell will ring and we will ask the Writers to rotate to the next table to speak with the next Producer candidate. Therefore, everyone will have chance to meet. The purpose of this is to give people a chance to make initial contact with fresh faces in the industry, collect business cards and go on to have more relaxed and in-depth conversations outside of the speed networking event.

After the session has finished, you can continue your conversations in the pub downstairs afterwards or at a later date.
