Only two weeks to go to the London Screenwriters Festival! And two big steps have been taken this week. First we sent our Screenwriter’s Pocketbook off to the printers. This is a FREE book that will be given to all delegates of the festival, kind of in the mould of the The Guerilla Film Makers Pocketbook. It’s crammed with articles by the biggest names in screenwriting and mentoring, such as Michael Hauge, Linda Seger and John August, as well as some of the brightest names in up and coming screenwriting.
I fought pretty hard to produce this book as I really wanted all our delegates to leave with something that they could carry around with them, something that was useful beyond the festival, to remind them to keep on going…!
As part of the festival, all delegates, staff and speakers are invited to join our private networking community. This is a place where you can create your own page to represent ‘who you are’, ‘what you have done’ and ‘what you hope to get out of the festival experience’. Think of it as our own private Facebook.
Once you are a member you can share and hook up with anyone on the network. And already our online creative community is busy chatting, creating new relationships and helping each other.
Inside the network you will get…
• A personal page for all your details, kind of like a CV
• Access to all other members
• Access to the forum where you can ask and answer questions within the community
• Live chat so you can interact in real time with anyone on the network
• Share photos, videos, blogs and any other media
• Tight integration with Facebook and Twitter
• A short ‘how to’ induction video
• Plus loads more features, widgets and cool stuff
Best of all, the network is live now, and will remain active even after the festival. (You can watch our short induction video here)
To join the LSF Delegates Private Network simply sign up to the festival and you will receive an invitation via email.

Onwards and upwards!
