Making It As A Screenwriter is a brilliant guide to breaking into the business of screenwriting. It doesn't tell you how to write, or offer the promise of guaranteed success - you achieve that through your own talent and hard work. Instead the book distills the advice and hard-won wisdom working writer Adrian Mead offers at his sell-out workshops. Best of all, pay to download a copy [£7.79 + VAT] and all profits go to the charity Childline.
Not convinced? Read this: “In the confusing forest of screenwriting books here is a sturdy oak: simple, honest and true. Highly recommended" - Ashley Pharoah, co-creator of Life On Mars and Ashes To Ashes. “Every aspiring writer should be forced to read this, at gunpoint. If I'd had this when I first started writing, I'd have cried a bit, but would have been so much better prepared” - James Moran, screenwriter for Doctor Who, Torchwood, Primeval.
Having helped copy edit the book, I can only add my recommendation to that of the esteemed scribes above. To find out more about Making It As A SCreenwriter, visit this page.
