• London Screenwriters' Festival

    The London Screenwriters’ Festival starts this Friday on 7th September and finishes on 9th. A fantastic event and one I’ve attended since 2011 and have never been disappointed.

    As well as the choice of lectures and script to screen viewings I will be taking part in the Great British Pitchfest. There are different slots during the three days of the festival with different executives in film and/or television. This is where a limited number of us will have a chance to Speed Pitch to ten executives. We get five minutes to pitch before we have to move on. Normally we manage to pitch to five or six executives in 90 minutes.

    During the festival my script for TOGETHER FOREVER is having an Actor’s Table Read where it will be workshopped by a director and two actors for an hour. This is such a useful exercise as it can show where there has been repetition or dialogue doesn’t work and also how easily the actors can get into the part, or not!

    Then on 9th I finish with a 50 minute consultation with a script doctor from Euroscript – www.euroscript.co.uk to discuss my horror script THE HEN PARTY FROM HELL.

    All of these initiatives are included in the price. You just have to watch out for the appropriate deadlines and make sure your work is ready to upload.

    What’s not to like.


    As soon as this festival is over you can book your Early Bird Ticket for 2019 at a good price and choose to pay for it by instalments.

    Just do it!
