Screenwriting: Tutored Retreat

The journey from page to screen

Monday November 5th - Saturday November 10th 2018

The Hurst

If you are a writer who has a recently completed script but know you still have real work to do, then we are here to help and support you. Is your screenplay distinctive and will it hold an audience’s attention? What are its strengths and how can it be improved? Are you writing well enough for the leading actors whose interest will aid your drama on its journey to a big or small screen? After booking on this course, you are invited to submit a pitch document outlining your screenplay (up to 2,000 words) and the first ten pages of a work-in-progress screenplay, to be sent to by 24 September 2018.

This course is half-price for Arvon 18-25 members and those in receipt of certain UK state benefits – see here for concession pricing information.

Single room price: £800 


The Hurst front

The Hurst

The Hurst is a place you can write, far away from daily distractions. The house and gardens, surrounded by the forest-covered Shropshire Hills, were the former home of playwright John Osborne.
