Information

So you’ve been inspired to write your own story for the screen, the stage or just for you. You’ve come out swinging with iconic characters and moments, and you *know* that this is a winner. You just have to start. So why is it 2am, and you’re still staring at a blank screen?

The hardest part of being a writer is the writing. And if you’re at the beginning of your practice, it can feel impossible. But, there is a writer in you ready to tackle the task.

A great way to kick start your ideas hiding in your Notes app and your Moleskines, THE WRITER IN ME will demystify the writing process, help you move your first thoughts to a first draft, and culminate in a pitch session and discussion with your fellow writers.
