My colleague Rosie and I are running are a programme with Iconic Steps called Get Started in Screenwriting and Mindfulness and there are still some places left!
The programme is for anyone aged 16-30 with a keen interest in screenwriting, creative writing, film, and TV. They need to be currently not in education, employment, or training (exceptions made for part time work under 16hr per week) The programme will take place online via teams.
Get Started – Screenwriting and Mindfulness (16-30)
Learn the art of storytelling on screen from a professional screenwriter, and how mindfulness practice can clear your mind, enhance creativity, and allow you to unlock your writing skills. Delivered by Iconic Steps, this course will cover all the basics of screenwriting, such as plot and character development, creating a narrative and exploring key themes, whilst learning meditation techniques to help when working on a script or other creative projects. By the end of the week, you will have written and reviewed a script for a short film which will be read out by professional actors. Potential for amazing progressive opportunities with well-known media companies and support with entry level jobs into the field!
Taster Day: Wednesday 13th September
Programme: Monday 18th September – Friday 22nd September
Location: MS Teams
Following the programme, the young people will get up to 6 sessions of 1-1 support from either myself or Rosie to explore their future goals, whether it’s further training in writing, seeking work within the creative sector or pursuing something else entirely.
If you have anyone who might be interested, please fill out the attached referral form. I’ve attached the course poster also.
