COVETED MG ALBA TV WRITING SCHOLARSHIP UP FOR GRABS

Talented Gaelic writers are being given the opportunity to apply for a coveted MG ALBA scholarship to study television fiction writing at Glasgow Caledonian University.

The MA Television Fiction Writing course is the only dedicated one year postgraduate programme of its type in the UK, providing aspiring screenwriters with the tools to embark upon or strengthen their career in television fiction writing, and MG ALBA are supporting a placement on the course for one Gaelic speaker.

Taught by a combination of leading TV scriptwriters and academic staff including course lecturer Professor Ann Marie Di Mambro whose credits include EastEnders, Casualty and River City, students on the course will work intensively on at least two drama series currently transmitting on British television, learning how to story conference, storyline, write scripts and edit these dramas.

Seumas MacMillan was the MG ALBA scholar in 2014 and is now one of the writers on BBC ALBA’s Gaelic drama Bannan.

Reflecting on the course, Seumas said: “The MA in TV Fiction Writing is unique in that tutors are TV writers themselves and their guidance and support allows students to develop the craft skills necessary to pursue a screenwriting career.

“The course provided me with not only the skillset but the mindset to take my profession forward and I have been fortunate to work on BBC ALBA’s first drama series Bannan which has been a huge development in my career and I would encourage all talented Gaelic writers to apply.”

The MG ALBA scholarship will be awarded to one person, fluent in Gaelic, who will join the programme in September 2016. Applications need to be submitted before Thursday 26th May.

COTHROM SGOILEARACHD MG ALBA ANN AN SGRÌOBHADH TBH AIRSON LUCHD-LABHAIRT NA GÀIDHLIG

Tha cothrom aig sgrìobhadairean tàlantach Gàidhlig cur a-steach airson sgoilearachd luachmhor MG ALBA ann an Cùrsa Sgrìobhadh Ficsean Telebhisein aig Oilthigh Cailleannach Ghlaschu.

’S e an cùrsa MA ann an Sgrìobhadh Ficsean Telebhisean Gàidhlig an aona cùrsa iar-cheumnach dha leithid san RA, a’ toirt seachad nan sgilean sònraichte do sgrìobhadairean gus tòiseachadh fhaighinn ann an dreuchd shoirbheachail ann an sgrìobhadh ficsean telebhisein agus tha MG ALBA a’ toirt taic do aon neach le Gàidhlig a’ chùrsa a dhèanamh.

Air a theagasg le measgachadh de sgrìobhadairean sgriobt agus luchd-obrach acadaimigeach, nam measg An t-Ollamh Ann Marie Di Mambro a tha air obrachadh air leithid Eastenders, Casualty agus River City, bidh oileanaich a’ chùrsa ag obair gu dian air co-dhiù dà shreath dràma a tha an-dràsta gan craoladh air telebhisean ann am Breatainn, ag ionnsachadh co-obrachadh air slighe sgeulachd agus cnàmhan sgeulachd, sgrìobhadh sgriobtaichean agus obair deasachaidh air na dràmathan.

Bha Seumas Mac a’ Mhaoilein na sgoilear air a’ chùrsa ann an 2014 agus tha air a dhol air adhart gu bhith a’ sgrìobhadh airson dràma Gàidhlig BBC ALBA, Bannan.

A’ coimhead air ais air a’ chùrsa, thuirt Mgr. Mac a’ Mhaoilein: “Tha cùrsa MA TV sònraichte oir tha na tuitearan fhèin nan sgrìobhadairean Tbh agus tha an comhairle agus an taic a’ toirt cothrom do na h-oileanaich an cuid comasan a leasachadh gus dreuchd ann an sgrìobhadh a choileanadh.

“Dh’ionnsaich mi an t-uabhas air a’ chùrsa airson nan sgilean agam a leasachadh agus mo dhreuchd a thoirt air adhart. Tha mi air a bhith fortanach obair fhaighinn air a’ chiad sreath dràma air BBC ALBA, Bannan agus tha sin air a’ chùrsa-dreuchd agam a thoirt air adhart gu mòr agus chanainn ri sgrìobhadairean Gàidhlig tàlantach cuir a-steach airson a’ chùrsa.”

Thèid sgoilearachd MG ALBA a thairgse do aon sgoilear, a tha fileanta sa Ghàidhlig, san t-Sultain 2016. Feumaidh tagraidhean a bhith a-staigh ro Diardaoin 26 Cèitean.
