Monthly script development workshops

Due to COVID-19, our courses are currently suspended until further notice. Details of resumption of the vocational training programme will be communicated in due course. In the meantime, take a look at our new new online bitesize vocational training programme.

What will I learn?

Got a script or script idea you want to develop ? Need some constructive criticism and feedback? Want to make your work the best it can possibly be – whether feature film, short film, TV drama or sitcom ?

Bring your work along to Euroscript’s three-hour drop-in project development workshops at Bectu. From initial idea to finished script, you will receive constructive criticism and help to develop it further. You’ll improve your writing, story assessment and editing skills by giving feedback to other writers with our professional script consultant leading the workshop.

Workshop content

We allocate one tutor to up to six writers. Five days before the workshop you submit your work (up to 30pp of a screenplay or four pages of a treatment and (optional) questions/points you’d like the group to consider) to be circulated to the other writers and our tutor.

You will receive feedback from the other writers and tutor; and together we’ll plot a development plan, deadlines to focus you for each step and clear attainable goals to tackling the next draft.

Who’s it for?

Screenwriters, producers and directors who want to improve their writing, story assessment and editing skills by giving and receiving constructive feedback guided by a professional script consultant.

What people say about it

“Each time I have gone, I have found new insights and helpful comments that have stimulated my creativity and given me fresh impetus. It is crucial to have feedback from other writers if you are to succeed as a writer.” Stephen Curran, screenwriter

“An excellent way to keep you focused and moving forward with your writing. I know of no other workshop where you can get such useful, practical help with your script.” Catriona Craig, writer/director
