Script Writing Courses

script-writing-coursesHere at Script Advice I offer my online course on script writing for TV. This is a four part online course that covers all you need to construct and present a professional, pitch-ready TV series.

‘I really loved the approach you suggest to treatments, beginning with character. I had such fun writing it and I also used exactly the same format for another treatment that I’ve been playing about with for ages and not managing to form into a coherent state. I sent this off and had such a positive response and great meeting about it yesterday. So already I am feeling that this is money exceedingly well spent!’ Rachel Smith, Writer

‘Just completed the first part of ‘Script Writing for TV’, on Treatment. Huge thanks, Yvonne, for your energy, insights and practical suggestions. I never imagined that writing a 10-page pre-formatted document would be such a boon to the creative process! Roll on part two’ Anthony Etherington Writer

We had a blast. 12 writers 10 pages each. Intensive script edit sessions and collective group discussions on all the tips and tricks necessary to make your crucial first pages shine. Then Kate Oates Series Producer Coronation Street, Simon Harper Series Producer Holby City and Jean Kitson Agent joined us for a jolly Q and A discussion about series writing. Then we went to the pub and networked and nattered.

Tony Jordan CEO of Red Planet Productions will be reading the best pages from the day. Contact me to register your interest in doing this with us again in the Autumn.
