Opportunity: Scriptwriting Course (UK)
After a successful ten week course, Bridgend College are delighted to offer an extended 20 week course exploring the professional world of scriptwriting.
There is no pre-requisite to this next course except for the passion to write. The course is open to all providing individual tutorials/mentorship to help assist each writers goal and level. The course will begin on January the 17th at 5 pm – 8 pm. There is no cost for unemployed students.
The past course saw all students showing ten page plays with professional actors reading. Feedback was given by industry professionals. It is hoped to do the same again with an invited audience to showcase your work.
This course will be about you developing a 30 min/full piece with mentorship and guidance. Some sessions will allow for writing time and personal tutorials allowing space for not all sessions to be attended (if this helps with external commitments). If you can’t make all sessions, tutorials can be given at an agreed time and correspondence via email with notes attached. We had students undertake this mode of study within the last course very successfully. The course allowed many writers to utilise a deadline and create a body of work within a given time frame. Contact with other students and the lecturer/mentor also offered support in what can be an isolated environment.
If you would like to secure a place please reply to this email (as spaces are limited) or attend on Tuesday the 17th of January at Bridgend College, Main Campus, The Little Theatre, 5 pm.
The course will be taught by Carmen Medway-Stephens Playwright, 1.618 Theatre Company, who has taught scriptwriting for 13 years, attended many lead industry courses in London, a Masters in Scriptwriting for Theatre, Film, TV and Radio and has received a recent mentorship from Sherman Cymru Literary Dept.
