BUILD A CAREER

Once you're confident in your craft, the next stage is getting your ideas out there - getting them in front of people who can put you on the path to a career in screenwriting.

How we can help:

THE TRIBE

The Tribe is our flagship career development program for serious writers.

If you have written one or two good scripts and you know you are committed to working as a screenwriter but you are struggling to get to the next stage then this is for you.

Tribe is an intensive set of six workshops in London that focus on developing your access to the industry. You will be given a current TV script editor, and practical support on developing your connections.

OPEN DOOR

'Open Door' is our monthly newsletter.

To have a successful writing career you must know the industry well.

In fact, without knowing how the industry works, how the script sales and development process works, or who are the key players when it comes to buying and developing scripts, your job of selling scripts becomes harder, or even impossible. 

The goal of Open Door is to help you understand the British industry and find your place within it. 

Open Door is packed with articles on career strategy. We also run constant interviews with industry figures, and industry news relevant to screenwriters, including recent greenlights and writing opportunities, events and opinions, plus profiles of production companies.

CONNECT!

Connect! is our directory of agents and production companies who want to read scripts from new writers.

Every spring we call just about every single British production company and literary agency to ask them whether their company reads unsolicited scripts.

This year that meant calling 197 literary agencies and 214 production companies. 

In doing so we found a small but significant segment of 23 agencies and 12 production companies, right here in the UK, who said they want to read new work from new writers who don't have agents. 

We published their contact details in our book Connect!
