Pre-LSF 2017...

I don't know about you, but it feels like the last 12 months have totally flown by! It's nearly time for everyone's favourite  screenwriting event - The London Screenwriters' Festival :) This year, my coming-of-age drama 'Lola', which I wrote a few years ago now, has been selected for The Actors Table Read. I'm really looking forward to revisiting the script and seeing it performed, as it has always been one of my faves.

I also found out yesterday that I have been selected for the Writers' Room Comedy Incubator where I'll be spending a whole day learning how to write topical comedy with writer Jack Bernhardt - writer of Dead Ringers & The News Quiz. Topical comedy isn't something I've really tried my hand at before, so it will be great to learn from someone with hands on experience and spend a whole day coming up with (hopefully hilarious!) jokes. Extra congrats to the other five writers who were selected as part of my group, and to my friends Philip Lawrence, Rachel Paterson & Tracey Parsons who were selected for the Doctors & Casualty Schemes. 

Looking forward to the festival! x
