Scottish Screenwriters Workshop

Scottish Screenwriters Workshop
Saturday 14 May, 13:00-15:00 (donations only)
Hutchesons’ Grammer School

A must for all aspiring screenwriters, the Southside Film Festival will be hosting one of Scottish Screenwriters regular workshops at Hutchesons’ Grammer School in the main building, entering by Beaton Road. The group hold regular meetings/workshops in Glasgow and Edinburgh where novice and professional screenwriters meet, discuss and develop ideas and scripts.

When John McShane & Jerry Brannigan completed their first Writers Factory Screenwriting Course they enjoyed the workshopping element so much that they organised a writing group to meet monthly to continue their development as screenwriters. Now, 7 years on, the website, Scottish Screenwriters has well over 500 members as well as Edinburgh and Glasgow Groups who continue to meet monthly. Whether it’s at one of the meetings, or on the website, Scottish Screenwriters is a place where all screenwriters can go to meet fellow screenwriters, exchange information and have others read their work in a safe and constructive environment.

Jerry Brannigan is currently completing a feature film commission, and is working with John McShane on a number of projects on Robert Burns which includes a Book and a Drama for television. Both Jerry & John are also working with a New York based television production company and have set up a Glasgow based writing team to work with them.
