Masterclass: The Professional Scriptwriter

Masterclass: The Professional Scriptwriter

Zoom Masterclass with Robin Mukherjee
  • Robin Mukherjee
Date Friday November 18th 2022, 11:00 - 13:00 GMT
Location Online

Perhaps you’re on the verge of breaking through. Or maybe it seems like a distant dream. Perhaps you’re getting screenwriting commissions, and find yourself challenged in ways you hadn’t anticipated. Drawing from his own experiences, and telling tales he probably shouldn’t, Robin Mukherjee will explore the relationship between writer and industry. How do you work with producers, editors, and dramaturges? How do you work with notes? How can you continue to develop your craft, and your voice, working to order? Are there credible methods to improve productivity, keep you focussed, and optimise your career strategy? Or is it just muddling through? In short, how does the creative writer become – and survive becoming – a professional writer? Join Robin for this inspiring boost to your screenwriting career and practice.

The Masterclass will be delivered via Zoom webinar (11:00-13:00), 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.

"These zoom opportunities are really helping to open my world and keep me inspired to write."

"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."
— Masterclass participant
"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."
