Year round courses, workshops, events and initiatives

Lucy V Hall_Final_140615_091We don’t just run seminars, we inject rocket fuel into the hearts, minds and souls of people so that they can be fully and creatively self expressed.

Year round we run all manner of amazing things, from screenwriting initiatives like Create50, to large scale events like the London Screenwriters’ Festival to smaller more intimate gatherings at the London Breakfast Club and TEDxEaling.

In everything we do, we pay particular attention to…

  • Community – We are in this together and can and SHOULD support and help each other.
  • Value – We strive to keep the costs down on everything we do and offer.
  • Action – We don’t just run seminars, we want to create powerful outcomes through YOU taking action.
  • Inspiration – Buckle up!

Consider us your partners on your own creative journey.
