The European Writers Club (EWC) is a new pilot programme,
supported by the European Union under its latest initiative
called “Writing European”.
EWC aims to spark and facilitate collaboration between creators, writers, broadcasters and producers
of European TV series. We want to help our members boost their creativity and originality, and tell stories that appeal
a larger European audience, across borders. Our work will encourage European commissioners to seek new,
original ideas instead of relying on previous results.
EWC will create a unique European network of industry professionals. In addition to a collective and collaborative process
of sharing, exchanging and getting inspired, EWC will introduce new methods of creating stories. Through our partnerships, we aim to secure faster access to market for the best original ideas, and capture a large European audience with storytelling that transcends borders. EWC is all about creative empowerment and building an infrastructure that can compete with those of the global streamers.
