Media release: Scriptwriting course, being hosted by NUJ Scotland


HOW do you take the germ of an idea and take it from script to screen?

This one-day introduction-to-scriptwriting course – taking place on Thursday April 4, in Glasgow – will help to demystify the process.

You will learn how to shape and form compelling plots, dynamic characters and engaging dialogue. You will get experience working on the structure of scripts, understanding how they are put together, the format and software packages which are industry standard.

You will learn what makes good drama and comedy and about the inside track on how TV drama is put together. Your tutor has extensive experience writing for a number of recurring dramas from bodies under the patio at Brookside in the 1990s to the ups and downs of the residents of Shieldinch in BBC Scotland’s River City.

By the end of the day, you should feel more confident in putting your ideas on to paper and seeing your characters come alive.

If you’ve been itching to write and have ideas that need to come to life, this one-day course is for you and costs £95 for NUJ members (including materials and sandwich lunch).
