News: Scriptwriting Masterclass and Workshop

Jimmy McGovern, whose TV credits include Brookside, Cracker and the BAFTA-award winning The Street, will be appearing In Conversation with Julian Jordon on Friday 17th April in Wigan Town Hall.

On the 18th April, Jordon will be interviewing David Nobbs, creator of Reggie Perrin and on the 22nd April there'll be an opportunity to put it all into practice with a Scriptwriting workshop held in Wigan Cricket Club.

The workshop is FREE (booking essential) and will cover the basics of scriptwriting: creating character, plot, and memorable scenes, the right way to set out your script, pitching your script and where to go next.

Jordon is professional editor, scriptwriter, founder of Blooming Media and promoter at the literature development agency Write Out Loud.

For more information and booking details, call Wigan Tourist Information Centre on: 01942 825677

Don't forget, Steve Feasey is still taking questions about his writing career, his novel and anything else you can think of - until the end of the week.
