I’m delighted to be teaching the screenwriting course at this year’s John O’Connor Writing School in Armagh, from 3rd-5th November.
During these practical and inspiring sessions you’ll learn how to create characters that leap off the page, how to structure a story for the screen, how to write a great scene, explore the common mistakes writers make and more. This is suitable for beginners and emerging screenwriters who want to take their scripts to a deeper level. We’ll focus primarily on TV and film, but many of the tools and insights can be adapted for radio and stage.
I’ll be passing on all all of my tips and insider knowledge gained as an award winning writer for TV, short film, radio and theatre, and during my 8 years as a BBC script editor
The wonderful Barry Devlin is teaching the screenwriting masterclass on the Saturday.
The festival last year was friendly, intimate and great crack – so many writers mingling in such a small city.
