Every writer at some point struggles with finishing their script and executing the story they want to tell. This can be for numerous reasons: the dreaded writer’s block, plotting issues, problems with character development, rewrites… to finding the time in our busy lives to actually sit down and write. You are not alone!
That’s why we created our Script Development Fund, to help you find the precious time needed to not only finish your screenplay but to also provide you with the support to craft your very best story. Our Cash Grants will allow you to go on a writer’s retreat, take time off work, find a babysitter, or any other way that our winners see ﬁt in order to help them ﬁnd the time to write.
On top of that, our Head of Education and Script Development is there to support you with script development on your screenplay every step of the way over the course of 12 months.
That time, and our expert championing you and your work, will help you not only finish your screenplay but allow you to write your best piece of work ever.
Plus, in an initiative especially created for this contest, winners will be able to consult with representatives of the following organizations who are kindly giving their time to help our winning writers develop their screenwriting skills – McKee Seminars, ISA, Save The Cat, Women In Film & TV, InkTip, Pride Reads, and The British Blacklist.
