From Shakespeare’s Globe, to the West End, London has long been one of the great theater capitals of the world. But it is also home to several major film studios, BBC Television Centre, and some of the best writers working in film and television today. In this course, we will develop our own scriptwriting skills by studying some of the work of great London play- and screenwriters-as well as visiting some of the places they live(d) and work(ed)-and by learning and practicing the elements of script structure. No prior creative writing experience necessary. Just bring your imagination, and your sense of adventure.
