This session will be announced soon.
Tuesday 2nd June
Pour yourself a cup o’ joe, and come let us fill the gap left by your local coffee joint. Cafe Zoom is your opportunity to chat with fellow writers about whatever’s tickling your brain stem this morning.
Just a few short years ago, Philip Lawrence made a vow to himself — and the larger community of writers — at the London Screenwriters’ Festival. He was going to be a professional writer, whatever it took. Now, Phil writes for Eastenders, and he’ll never look back. Join us for a Script Chat with one of our own.
Many writers see an agent as the Holy Grail. But how much can an agent help a new writer? And how does a writer secure representation? Agent Julian Friedmann is here (via Zoom) to answer your questions about before, during, and after your relationship with your agent.
What makes viewers reach for that PLAY NEXT button at the end of each episode? How does your script demonstrate the best route to the next installment? And the one after that? Marc Jobst shares some inspiration, some education, and some sobering truths.
Dig deep with Christopher Lockhart, Story Editor at one of the most powerful agencies on Earth: William Morris Endeavor. Learn about pitching, reading, and what it feels like to answer your phone with “Hi, Denzel!”
