As part of the PEI Screenwriters Bootcamp
, I'm teaching a four day seminar on TV writing in Prince Edward Island June 2-5, courtesy Telefilm and the Island Media Arts Cooperative. You must be a Canadian in the Maritimes to participate. The deadline is tomorrow but if you're interested, please email Louise Lalonde at firstname.lastname@example.org and let her know I sent ya. The website says the deadline is the 21st, but it's been extended to today, and if you can get your app in by Monday, I'm sure it'll be okay.

Is there any website or anything where I can get more info on this? I'm in Newfoundland, but I'm seriously planning to take the hike up to PEI for this.
Just email Louise!
Okay, I put the website up there. See revised post.
How many times have you done this, Alex? What caliber are the writers who participate?
I've done it once before, and it was a lot of fun. The writers are emerging writers. Some of them were quite promising. I optioned a script out of the seminar. Some of them were still finding their feet. But I think everyone went away knowing a lot more than they knew coming in, and had some new writing buddies on top of it.
Thanks a lot, Alex. I just e-mailed Louise, only I hope it's not too late. I wish I had heard about this earlier.
This is exactly the type of thing I've been looking for.
