Develop Your Screenplay | Thu 19 Jan to Thu 2 Mar | 6.30-8.30pm | £90 (6 wks) | 16+ yrs | Tutor Becca Ellson | Digital Lounge

This is the third in a series of screenwriting courses at Brewery Arts which offer bespoke guidance and feedback to writers with a screenplay (in whatever state it may be in!) in a supportive environment, to develop a confident piece of work which is ready for an audience.

What will the class cover and how will it be taught?

Over 6 weeks, we will use development processes including guided feedback, stream-of-consciousness exercises, table reads, professional formatting tips and techniques to activate and visualise your story on the page.

The course can be taken on your terms, and we will demystify the industry and share resources for getting your script read and pitching if that is what you’re ready for.

Come prepared to share your work in a supportive guided writers’ room environment.

Who is it suitable for?

Screenwriters who have a first draft of a feature film or tv pilot and wish to develop it further.

Important information

Please note there are no sessions during the week beginning 20 February 2023.

What do I need to bring?

A laptop or pen and paper.

Are there any additional costs?
