Day 9 of Stay Warm and Write Month

Hello – today’s tip comes from Lucy Scher, the director of the Script Factory, a brilliant resource for script writers.


Which novelist sat down to write a novel without ever having read one?

You want to be a good screenwriter, get reading lots of good screenplays. Of course watch films, but there is no substitute for learning the craft than by working out how and why good films work as a script.

My book is called Reading Screenplays and it is a guide to figuring out just that.

The Script Factory has been running workshops since 1996 and has become one of Europe’s leading filmmakers’ organisations finding and developing new talent.
