News, Tips & Advice

I have been writing these fortnightly newsletters for over a decade on many different aspects of screenwriting and storytelling. So this has grown into a fairly huge online resource for screenwriters.

We have tried to break the newsletters into useful categories so that you can access the subjects that interest you.
I have covered many subjects over the years – including PITCHING, CHARACTERISATION, LITERARY AGENTS, many recommendations of inspiring and brilliant shows and scripts; and interviews with many fascinating screenwriters and producers.

I hope you will have fun dipping into some of the old newsletters; and I hope that they will be helpful and energising for your screenwriting.
