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 workshop 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

“‘I started Theresa’s monthly workshops a year ago with zero scriptwriting experience, as a photographer and filmmaker. The workshops have been so encouraging and really given me the confidence and constructive criticism in order to propel myself from writing a 5 minute film to an entire feature script in just one year. Having the deadline of a workshop each month provides great accountability, helping the projects to progress sooner.” Jasmine de Silva, writer/director

‘I really enjoyed these sessions. Theresa is incredibly
knowledgeable and I loved the experience of workshopping in a friendly, supportive environment. I learnt a lot about screenwriting, both the craft side and the important formatting issues.'”
Katie Whitehead, writer
