That’s what the team of professional Euroscript readers and editors offer to EVERY delegate who attends the London Screenwriters’ Festival.
How does it work?
You must have a ticket for the festival to use this service. The Story and Script Clinic is an opportunity for writers to get advice from our experienced script doctors about their stories, scripts, and ideas.
Our 50-minute appointments can be booked in advance. Before your appointment you can send us material to be read, which can be ONE of:
- A story outline of no more than two pages.
- A summary, proposal or idea, expressed in one page or less.
- The first ten pages of a script, plus a half page (max) pitch.
- A question or questions about a project, or your writing.
We’ll try to be flexible about these guidelines but please follow them as closely as possible. We have limited time to read material in advance, and for the session itself, so think carefully about what you want to send.
Alternatively, you can simply use the appointment to talk about an idea, a project, or your writing in general, without sending any written material.
The clinic is open for all three days of the festival on Friday 26th, Saturday 27th and Sunday 28th. The slots for appointments are:
Friday: 12 noon; 2pm; 3.30pm; 5pm
Saturday: 10:30am; 12 noon; 2pm; 3.30pm; 5pm
Sunday: 10:30am; 12 noon; 2pm; 3.30pm; 5pm
To book an appointment, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org indicating which time slot you’d prefer, and what material, if any, you propose to send. We’ll confirm your appointment, or offer an alternative time slot if necessary. We advise you to book early as appointments are allocated on a FIRST COME FIRST SERVED basis.
Please remember YOU MUST HAVE A TICKET TO THE FESTIVAL in order to book an appointment for the Euroscript clinic.
We’ll also be operating a drop-in desk, manned by a duty script doctor who’ll be happy to talk to you about your work in an informal workshop with any other writers who may be using the service.
