The Road To Film Agents
The Writers' Workshop
We are the world's leading consultancy for first time writers. We offer:
• Screenwriting courses
Our film consultants are all pro screenwriters, most of whom have also worked for major production companies such as Miramax, Warner Bros, Working Title, Lynda La Plante Productions, and so on. Read more about our script consultants.
The gold standard way for any writer to improve their work is to get tough, independent script advice. The Writers' Workshop is all about providing that advice in a way that is tough but sympathetic, market-aware and always constructive.
Because we are extremely selective when it comes to choosing our editors, our script assessments are as good as they get. And when we find a script strong enough to be marketed, we will ALWAYS seek to place it with a film agent - and we never charge for so doing. Read more >>
Our screenwriting course
Have you ever travelled to work or sat in an office and a great idea for a story has popped into your head? Do you sometimes watch television and know that you can do better? Is the only thing holding you back knowing where to start?
We run an excellent foundation course in screenwriting, which is intended to give you the skills you need to start a script of your own. The course is both inspirational and rigorous and it's taught (of course!) by a pro screenwriter with oceans of experience. Read more >>
