What we're about

About North West Writing:

At its heart, North West Writing is for anyone who wants to knuckle down and write that novel/play/film that's been whirling round your head for too long! Hopefully as the group grows, we can create the micro-environment just needed to concentrate hard on our writing.

No matter the level of experience, or style of writing, there will be something available for everyone. As writing can often be a lonely business, this is a chance for you to learn new skills, develop your craft and meet other like-minded people.

North West Writing aims to cover Liverpool and Manchester. Feel free to check our sister group: Leeds Writing Meetup (https://www.meetup.com/Leeds-Writing-Meetup/).

Creative Talent Campus: Idea into Pitch - Liverpool

Have a film/TV idea? In this session we will shape your dream idea into a pitch for film or TV and provide continued support connecting your project to the industry. Julia Berg (originally from Melbourne) directly puts your project in the hands of financiers/producers/agents. To date - these introductions have connected participants to Oscar nominated screenwriters, Emmy winning production companies and BFI Hubs around the UK, Europe, US and Australia. In these sessions, Julia will share her successes and strategies where she has attracted BAFTA winning producers and Academy nominated screenwriters to her projects. Writer's rooms are proven to work. They are collaborative, exciting - an exchange of groundbreaking ideas that will also strengthen your networks. You will receive Julia's one on one guidance, notes, experience adapting novels into film/TV and have access to her support/consultation beyond the sessions. Bridging the gap to get your project happening. We will move within a fast time frame (over two sessions) to ensure a pace and no more procrastination. Everyone will sign an NDA – copyright belongs to the owner of the idea. The room and ideas shared and discussed are confidential. Strictly limited places on this workshop to ensure everyone gets Julia’s support. What is required of YOU Bring the idea to share with us that you are passionate about.
