An Overview to Scriptwriting for Stage and Screen with Lucy Kaufman

Have you ever considered writing for the stage and screen?

The good news is, more and more opportunities are opening up in scriptwriting for Theatre, Film, TV and Audio than ever before. But if you’ve never written a script, these industries can be daunting for a new scriptwriter.

Where do you start?

How do you approach writing a script?

What essentials should you know before you begin?

In this two hour workshop, writer Lucy Kaufman will give a comprehensive Overview of Scriptwriting for Stage and Screen.

Lucy Kaufman is an award-winning scriptwriter and author. 36 of her plays have been performed professionally around the UK and Australia, to critical acclaim. Her short story Pianoforte won a national competition and is published in an anthology Toast.

Lucy is currently working on a novel and an exciting new audio drama series. She teaches Playwriting and Screenwriting for Pen to Print and is Lecturer in Screenwriting for Canterbury Christ Church University.
