Ever wanted to write for TV? Come along to one of out FREE Significant Ink taster sessions this spring. With writers Danielle Jawando and Chris Neilan, we'll be looking at character, dialogue, and the features of a good script using film clips as reference point, as well as working on our own script ideas.

Significant Ink is a new talent development initiative led by New Writing North, which aims to find and develop brand new voices currently under-represented in UK screenwriting. The taster sessions are aimed at a range of writers, including those with no previous experience.

We are particularly looking to connect with writers from groups that are currently under-represented, including BAME, LGBTQ+, disabled and working class writers.

Come along, have a go at screenwriting and find out more about the Significant Ink professional development programme, which aims to bring writers from under-represented groups to the attention of broadcasters and production companies, including via talent development and award schemes run by New Writing North, Channel 4 and others. 

Far any queries please contact Michael Edwards michael.edwards@sky,com

Central Library

The Central Public Library was officially opened in 1912 by Alderman Amos Hinton. Built on two plots of land, one donated by Sir Hugh Bell, the other by Alderman Amos Hinton, the foundation stone was laid in 1910 and the building, sometimes known as the Carnegie Library, was officially opened on May 8, 1912. Featuring a classical design selected from 203 submissions, its architects were Messrs. S. B. Russell and T. E. Cooper, of Gray's Inn Square, London.

In its original form, it provided a lending library where boys' and girls' sections were separated by a screen, a ladies' reading room, a central news room with a separate entrance in Grange Road, and on the first floor were the law and patent and reference libraries. This was Middlesbrough's first purpose-built premises to house its public library.
