*Fully Booked* Screenwriting Workshop

Have YOU got a great idea for a feature film? Love movies and want to know how scripts work? Or ever secretly thought you would do a much better job of writing a TV drama? This whistle-stop tour of How to Write a Script is for you!

During this three hour workshop you'll discover:

•    What makes a great story
•    How to create wonderful (and terrifying) characters 
•    How to write dialogue that leaps off the page
•    How to get an audience on the edge of their seats

It’s fun and engaging and no preparation is required. 
Great for complete beginners and seasoned writers alike. 

Christabelle Dilks is a screenwriter and script editor with a long career in Film and TV Drama. A commissioning editor in Channel 4 Drama, she has worked on features, single dramas and TV series.

What is Do Something Different?

The Do Something Different Programme is about trying a new activity and sparking your interests! We aim to encourage greater student interaction from across schools, liberations and courses that build your knowledge and skills as individuals. Perhaps you've been looking to try a new sport, attending a live music performance, or dabbling in an academic subject that piques your interest? We collate a wide variety of different activities happening across campus - from sports and games, to trips and extracurricular lectures! 

There's always something happening every single day, and most events are absolutely free or cost very little! The best events will return during the Do Something Different Festival in Semester Two - a week-long celebration in which teaching is suspended for you to try a huge range of activities! Stay tuned for the full Festival programme coming soon! 

If you had a great time at a DSD event, make sure you head to the website and leave your feedback and stories! Tell us about your ideas and what you want to see under Do Something Different.
