Screenwriting Workshops with industry professional - and it's a freebie!

Hello there! Ruth here, and I'm posting from the pendelino, so expect an occasional delay and some slightly dubious tea. This opportunity is a cracker for all of you who are looking to expand your screenwriting skills and portfolio. You need to act quickly - deadline is Monday 29th June!

How to Get Ahead in Screenwriting - Summer Course & Masterclass

Signal Films is offering aspiring screenwriters in Lancashire and Cumbria the opportunity to take part in free scriptwriting training led by an industry expert this summer.

Tutor Rob Ritchie, former Head of Screenwriting at the National Film and Television School will guide trainees through the process of developing a short film script to industry standard during these special one-off courses taking place in Barrow-in-Furness and in Lancaster, with 15 places available on each course.

The 3 day courses will be followed by a 1 day intensive masterclass for all trainees on the principles of pitching and securing commissions and will be held in Barrow-in-Furness.
