We are EWC,
European Writers Club
The European Writers Club is a 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 to boost creativity and originality in telling important, impactful stories that transcend to a larger European audience across borders.
We support the main vision of the EU to unite the European countries and create a common platform for a sense of connectedness.
We aim to boost, upscale, and upgrade stories that resonate with Europeans of all walks of life. In a time where Europe is fragmented on multiple geopolitical levels, we help create stories that are relevant on a supranational level, - stories that unite European talents and audiences and generate profit.
We create a room of trust in between the industry creatives with the writers in focus, where ideas are welcomed with open arms, tried and tested, and developed in iterative processes.
We bring industry professionals, including writers, producers, broadcasters, and institutes, together in a unique European network. By inspiring, exchanging and collaborating with each other, EWC fast-tracks ideas to audiences using a toolbox of new methods and initiatives.
We boost stories that unite Europe, transcend borders, and speak into new paradigms. We believe that borderless collaboration creates fertile soil for the best stories.
We are a tight-knit team of four people, working together since 2021.
While coming from different countries and backgrounds, and adding our unique perspectives to each other's experience and knowledge, we work together towards the same goal.
