Screenwriting: Finding Your Voice

COURSE OVERVIEW

Discover your own individual voice and become a better screenwriter.

How can you as a screenwriter put yourself ahead of the game and grab an audience’s attention? Is it a coincidence that successful screenwriters often return to the same themes and write different versions of the same core story over again? Could it be that the key to their success is that they are writing from a place of unique emotional truth and it’s this that really connects with audiences the world over? We take a radical approach to screenwriting, in which the writers themselves become the focus of the process. We’ll teach you everything you need to know, in this 6 month Certificate Course, delivered across the UK and online.

The industry access, opportunity to pitch to networks, meet industry hitters and have your script analysed by a respected independent reviewer is fantastic.

Tammy was both generous with her time and incisive in her feedback, helping me get to the finish line and emerge at the end of year with a TV pilot that I'm excited to take to the industry.

An individual ‘voice’ is the currency of the writer – it’s what shapes our work, makes it distinctive, and most importantly, what makes it sell. To make your mark in this demanding and overcrowded industry you need to develop stories that only you can write.

In this highly competitive world of writing for film and television, the screenwriter can’t merely learn the principles, art and craft of screenwriting to ensure success. A ‘good story well told’ is simply not enough.

Over the course of 6 months, in weekly face-to-face sessions and fortnightly 1-2-1 tutorials on Zoom/Skype, you will be helped to discover their own individual voice, and mine your own life, experiences, dreams and obsessions to find stories that resonate personally.
