Weegie Wednesday is proud to announce our first Screenwriting Special for the WW Event in September. We are delighted that Adrian Mead has agreed to come along to talk to us and answer questions about writing for the Screen - both large and small.
Adrian would like members to buy and read his book 'Making it as a Screenwriter' as a way of priming the Q and A session. Adrian always points out that the advice in his book works for any writer, not just screenwriters.
All proceeds from sales of the eBook go to the outstandingly worthwhile charity ChildLine.
With this in mind we're going to shake up our normal format a little. Rather than limit Adrian to the usual ten minutes maximum and then let him mingle with WWeegies, we're going to ask him to introduce the topic and then answer questions from the audience. We'll start at 7:45pm and continue for forty minutes with the aim of resuming our normal networking at 8:30pm.
So, all you budding soap or film writers - or any other budding writer of any sort - get your copy here http://www.meadkerr.com/making-it-as-a-screen-writer/ and come along on 13th September bristling with eager questions.
