Can I get feedback on my script?

Due to the high volume of applications, we cannot give individual feedback on any script.

When will I find out if I've been accepted into the interview stage?

All applicants will be notified by late September/early October about the status of their application and whether or not they have advanced to the interview stage.

Do I get paid to be in the Workshop?

No. The endgame for the Workshop is to get you staffed on one of our shows.

Will the workshop pay for my travel or accommodation?

No, you will need to make your own arrangements.

Can my representation submit my material for me?


Is it okay if I have representation?


Is it okay if I'm a member of the WGA?

Yes, as long as you have not been a Staff Writer on a primetime, scripted cable, network or streaming series.

Can international applicants apply to the Workshop?

Yes, but to be accepted into the program you must either have a green card or have a visa that allows you to work in the US. We do not sponsor work visas.

Can Warner Bros. employees AND people who don't work at WBTV apply to the Workshop?

Yes, everyone is welcome to apply.

Is there ANY circumstance that would allow me to have an extension on the submission deadline?

No. To be fair towards everyone who submits, extensions will not be granted.

If I work at Warner Bros. can I drop off my script in person?

All scripts must be submitted through the website. Scripts that are mailed in or dropped off will not be accepted.

Can I resubmit a script I submitted last year?

If it didn’t get you in the first time, submit at your own risk.

Can I submit both Comedy and Drama specs?


How many scripts can I submit?

Up to two. You must complete your first submission and click Submit before beginning the second submission.

Does the spec need to be a Warner Bros. show?

No, but the show must be listed in our dropdown menu/on the Accepted Shows page to qualify.

What if I wrote a show that is NOT on the dropdown menu?

Only shows listed on our dropdown menu can be submitted. We know that every show on the air is not listed, but we believe the list is comprehensive enough for every writer to find one that matches their voice. First year shows are not on the list. Please visit the Accepted Shows Page for the full list of eligible options.

If I'm part of a writing team, do we each need to write a personal statement?

No, teams should submit ONE personal statement expressing their views.

If there is a problem with the website while I'm submitting, or I have another question that is not answered here, what do I do?

Please fill out the form on our Contact Us page.

If I created an account last year, do I have to re-register?

Yes. We redesigned our site so all past applicants from prior years will need to re-register.

Do you have a preference for whether or not our name is included on the script's title page?

No. Whether you want to include your contact information or not on the title page is up to you.

The application period for the Writers' Workshop closed on May 31st, 2018.
