Introduction to Screen Writing

Alexandra Palace

Haringey Literature Live has a whole new exciting programme of writing workshop courses on offer from Febraury: short fiction, life writing, poetry, novel writing and this all new screen writing course.

Whether you're totally new to script writing, or looking to knock an idea into shape, this introductory course offers the essential building blocks to help you create compelling stories for the screen. Over 6 weeks, through a mixture of seminars and practical exercises, the course will cover: the patterns all stories fall into instinctively; screenplay structure; character as story; the use of dialogue; TV vs Cinema; and the writing of log-lines. The aim is for all students to finish the course with a clear, strong road map for the writing or rewriting of their great concept as a script for the screen.
