Have you always wanted to try your hand at writing for the screen but never quite managed to get started? Are you currently working in the screen sector and hoping to move into screenwriting? Is there a story that you are passionate about seeing on screen, but don’t know where and how to begin?

If so, this masterclass is for you. Join award-winning actor turned screenwriter Lily Loveless, who will share her own journey, from deciding to write for the screen to winning a place on the prestigious Channel 4 screenwriting programme.

Along the way, Lily will provide exercises to encourage you to dig deep; tips and tools on how to get going (and keep going); and inspiration from her own experience, helping you to overcome any barriers, whether internal or external. This is a brilliant opportunity to gain insight and access into what can often be seen as an impenetrable industry.

The Masterclass will be delivered via Zoom webinar, so you can take the session at your own pace, without the pressure of having your video or camera on. Sessions are also recorded so if you are unable to attend live, you will have access to the recording for a month afterwards.

Online: £40

"Arvon at Home creates a model to participate in inspirational tutoring for writers, at a distance. The feeling of attending to my writing life in an excellent fashion, and still having a half-day for my work and caring responsibilities at home, felt like a good balance."

"It was an absolutely brilliant session and very very useful. And it made me realise how much I’ve missed this kind of workshop because of having children and family that I can’t leave. Now we’re all in the same boat the online stuff is truly transformative."
