“This course is incredibly informative and Caren is such a treat. The one-on-one help with my work, the modules, the research into the market, the links, the advice … all of this helped me really understand the process of TV writing.
I would DEFINITELY recommend this course to anyone who aspires to get into the tough world of television.” Anne O’Donnell, who writes under the name Jax Miller
“I recently started Caren Kennedy’s ‘Writing TV Treatments’ course and I’m finding it instructive, informative and very interesting. Each module, delivered in easy-to-learn units, is taking my TV show idea, fleshing it out, pumping it up and transforming it into a robust pitch. I would highly recommend this course to anyone wishing to write for TV.” Maura Byrne
