Screenwriting workshop with Lucy Scher of The Script Factory

  • Nov 11, 2014 · 7:00 PM
  • Shooting Star pub

Screeners, this one's for you! Lucy Scher, professional script writer and teacher, will holding a workshop on writing for the screen; dos and don'ts, structure, dialogue and all the key ingredients you need to tell a story in this form.

Whether you have been musing on an idea for years or started to tentatively draft the opening scenes of a screenplay, or pushed through to a first draft, this lively and discursive session explores the key principles of good story telling for film with the simple aim of leaving you better equipped and further inspired to carry on.

Lucy Scher is the director of The Script Factory and author of Reading Screenplays How to analyse and evaluate film scripts (Kamara Books 2011.) Having pioneered the first training course for script readers in 1999 Lucy has developed a method of reading scripts that looks to their potential rather than the faults, so that script development is a creative and rewarding experience for everyone involved.

Costs: £12 per person. Please follow the steps to pay via PayPal when you RSVP. Refunds will only be offered if the meetup is cancelled.

Location: The Shooting Star is less than 5mins walk from Liverpool Street station, on the central Line.

Directions: Take the Bishopsgate exit from the main rail concourse, cross the road, turn right at Dirty Dicks pub onto Middlesex Street. The pub is about 100 metres down on the right-hand side and we meet in the function room downstairs.
