One To One Mentoring

I have a couple of places opening up for my One To One Mentoring Programme, tailored specifically for you. I’ll pass on all the craft, tips and techniques I’ve learned as an award winning writer and BBC script editor, and I’ll help you to take your writing to a deeper level.

Whether you’re writing a screenplay, poetry, novel, short stories, non-fiction or a play, I’ll get you writing and keep you writing. The mentoring can be done via Skype or in person.

I was touched by a recent client’s comment: “She had the rare talent of making you feel everything was possible and that you deserved that everything too.”

If you want to open up to your own limitless possibilities, email me on info@deirdrecartmill.com to find out more.

Mindshift: Breaking Into Television

I’m delighted to be part of the Irish Writers Centre Mindshift: Breaking Into Television day on Saturday 6th October at the Irish Writers Centre in Dublin.

My session on Writing Drama runs from 11.50am-1.00pm

In this session find out what all drama commissioners are looking for and how to write a script that stands out. We’ll also look at the importance of story and what a script is NOT. I’ll share my experiences of writing for both the BBC and RTE. I worked as a script editor with the BBC for 8 years and I’ll also share my insights from the script editor’s point of view. I’ll detail what’s required in a submission, and how to build a relationship with an editor. There’ll also be some short writing exercises to get you thinking more deeply about your writing.

The day also includes Writing Comedy with James Phelan and a Panel session with Heather Browning and James Phelan chaired by David Kavanagh.

Date: Sat 6 Oct 2018
Time: 10.30am – 4.00pm
Duration: 1 Day
Cost: €50/€40 Members
