At this workshop, Adam and Barbara will also be introducing ‘Stratford Screenwriters’, a new screenwriters' group that will meet at The Other Place to read through and discuss members' story concepts, treatments and scripts. This is a 'next-step' class that will be available to attendees of any of the screenwriting workshops.

Adam and Barbara Fox have been professional writer/director/producers for more than twenty-five years. They have worked for the BBC, produced international bestselling series for Channel 4, and have recently returned from five years working in Hollywood on television and film projects. Having written their first script for the BBC in 1989, their highly regarded Screenwriter Workshops draw on a wide-ranging industry experience.

Being held for the first time in the UK, this series of workshops can be enjoyed individually or built into a complete course on the art and craft of screenwriting. Each workshop focuses on a different movie genre with a different type of script and highlights different screenplay techniques to uncover what makes a good film great.

Through illustrated examples, you will discover how to apply these timeless principles of storytelling to your own script. These unique workshops provide a wealth of knowledge and understanding that can be applied equally to all forms of story: radio and advertising, video games and novels, television and movies.

Whether you’re already a screenwriter with a script to edit, an aspiring screenwriter with a great story idea, a novelist, a copywriter, or someone who simply wants to know how a film works from behind the scenes, this is the workshop for you. Welcome To The Inside Story Of Screenplay!
