About the European Writers Club
The European Writers’ Club (EWC) is a new pilot program, supported by the European Union under their latest initiative called “Writing European”.
EWC aims to spark and facilitate collaboration between creators, writers, broadcasters, and producers of European tv-series to boost creativity and originality and tell stories that transcend to a larger European audience across- borders.
EWC will create a unique European network of industry professionals. By a collective and collaborative process of sharing, exchanging, and getting inspired, EWC will introduce new methods of creating stories and secure fast access to market for the best original ideas, which can capture a large European audience. EWC is all about creative empowerment and building an infrastructure that can compete with those of the global streamers.
EWC is centered around two sessions: boosting ideas is intended for european writers to exchange and meet together with writers and commissioners, explore their creativity and foster new original ideas for tv series.
Some of these ideas will be up for selection for our second session, boosting concepts which will take place in Spring 2023.
