THE 21ST CENTURY STORYTELLER WITH LINDA ARONSON : Taking your film and TV writing to the next level.

    This writing weekend was organised by Chris Jones who runs the London Screenwriting Festival: www.londonscreenwritingfestival.com The 10th anniversary of The London Screenwriting Festival will be taking place on 17th, 18th and 19th April next year in Regent’s College, London.

    The 21st Century Storyteller course was held at Ealing Studios. The studio is a television and film production company and facilities provider at Ealing Green in west London. They have 5 stages ranging in size from 1,000 to 10,000 square feet as well as serviced office space. Technology engineers have studios where they create VR, CGI and visual effects, there are several casting agencies and a hair and make-up accademy. In fact everything a filmmaker could need. Films have been made there since 1902. The Met Film School London also operates on the site.

    So it was with a feeling of awe that my friend Caroline Swain, author and career adviser: [https://breakingoutofthechrysalis.co.uk ] and myself arrived for Linda Aronson’s writing weekend.

    The writing weekend began promptly on Saturday 4th October at 9.30 until 6.00 pm and again on Sunday 5th October, 9.30 until 6.00 pm.

    Linda describes herself as an educator. Her expertise on non-linear narrative means she is in demand throughout the world to give lectures and workshops. Linda is a prolific writer having written screenplays for film and television, four novels and several plays. Her books Screenwriting Updated and The 21st Century Screenplay are required reading at film schools throughout the world. More recently she has become an adviser on VR (Virtual Reality). Born in England she lives in Australia with her Australian husband. You can sign up for her newsletter: www.lindaaronson.com

    The two day workshop was mentally exhausting and also exhilarating. Linda explained her theories on non-linear writing and illustrated them with clips from films and some television series. We came away with many notes and a better idea on how to write if you don’t want to follow a traditional three act Structure.

    If you get the chance to go to any of Linda's workshops - DO IT!
