Maybe 2017 is the year you finally get cracking on that screenplay!

Beginner's Guide to Screenwriting is a popular, dynamic two-day workshop that demystifies the nuts and bolts of screenwriting by taking you step by step through what you need to know to start writing.
Perhaps you've started your screenplay but you're struggling with all the conflicting info and "rules" online.

No matter where you're at - if you want to improve your screenwriting skills Beginner’s Guide to Screenwriting is designed for you. Screenwriting has much in common with other forms of creative writing and storytelling but it has a distinct form and language. This workshop provides an excellent grounding in both and offers insight into how film and television projects are put together.

Book early for Earlybird discount - till 31 December 2016.

Who’s it for? Newer screenwriters or industry professionals looking to up-skill. Check out the full detail on the booking site.
