Project offers writing skills

Trish Urquhart

The All About Writing organisation provides writers with the skills and advice they need to turn ideas into scripts producers drool over.

  Courses range from their self-guided mini-courses on writing compelling and believable dialogue, and creating vivid and memorable characters, to the crash course in all the skills involved in writing scripts, to the intensive kick-start programme, that walks writers through the process of writing a saleable outline.

  All About Writing will launch the first Screenwriting Crash Course for the year on 2 March, run by two experienced writing professionals. It is an intensive 10 module programme which schools writers in key tactics and strategies of master screenwriting over five weeks.

  “The Crash Course in Screenwriting is one of the most exciting projects I’ve been involved in,” says Michele Rowe, whose career morphed from writing for film and TV into writing novels, the first of which, What Hidden Lies, won the Crime Writers’ Association Debut Dagger Award.

  Richard Beynon, award-winning script writer, has worked as head writer on a number of soaps. He currently writes for Isibaya, and is a founder partner of the creative writing school, All About Writing.

“We have covered all the essential bases. In just five weeks, we believe participants will learn the key skills of writing a worthwhile script,” he says.  

  After finishing the programme Sally Andrew, author of the Tannie Marie murder mysteries, said: “There was a lovely combination of theory and practice; readings, scripts, movie excerpts to watch, and screen-writing exercises.”
