At the London Screenwriters Festival last year, we produced a very special Screenwriters Pocketbook, crammed with insights, tips and tricks for movie scribes. As it was our first year we printed more than we needed and we have around 100 left. So we thought that we would share them with you.
So you can have a free one if you cover the manufacturing costs, the packing, postage and time it takes Gemma in the office to stuff it in an envelope and send it to you. We figure that’s £3 if you live in the UK, £4 if you live abroad.
So what’s in the book? It’s a series of articles writer for ScriptWriter magazine with some heavyweight names from the screenwriting world such as Michael Hauge, Phil Parker and John August, as well as newer names from the emerging talent pool. It truly is pocketbook sized, so ideal for the tube, bus or dare I say, loo!
