The most important event for Screenwriters in the UK this year

The team in the office is now gearing up for the London Screenwriters Festival at the end of October (video above from last year).

And we have a brand new and shiny website too. You can check it out at It’s less than two months to go now and tickets are now selling like hot cakes.

We are still to announce our complete speaker line-up, though we have the first twenty five or so live on the site – – including Chris Vogler (Hero’s Journey fame), Rowan Joffe (The America, 28 Weeks Later) and legendary producer Duncan Kenworthy (Four Weddings…, Love Actually, The Eagle). And we have another forty speakers to announce, including a couple of big names we are trying to nail down to dates.  Speakers here.

If you want to come, you can take advantage of my own discount code CHRISJONESBLOG, which will get you £30 off the ticket price.

Remember this is three intensive days of screenwriting workshops and seminars (over 70 in all) at the end of October (we film most sessions so any you miss you can catch up on in our network later). Four hundred or so delegates will be present so there is tons of opportunity for networking too.

Should you come? If Screenwriting is important to you, ABSOLUTELY. Quite frankly, it’s exceptional value. And not just a screenwriting masterclass series, it’s a gathering of like minded people who will collectively shape the future of film and TV in the UK!

OK here’s the site address,, and remember that code, CHRISJONESBLOG. Don’t wait too long too as we will sell out this year.

And thanks to Oli Lewington for the video above.

Chris Jones, Film Maker and Author
