Welcome to the home of the London Writers’s Circle.
There are writer’s circles everywhere, but none known of in the London area that focus on screenwriters. So, in the wake of London Screenwriters’ Festival 2013, it was decided to plug this gap, to create a circle of writers that support and encourage each other, keeping the momentum, mutual support and community of the Festival alive. While the emphasis of the writers’ circle is screenwriting, other forms of writing won’t be excluded, so readings of prose or other dramatic script work will also be welcome.
As well as mutual critiquing and encouragement, it is also our intent to perform table reads of dialogue and share contacts, experience and opportunities. Furthermore, as many of us are early in our writing careers, there will be set assignments, whether writing exercises, or critical viewing of specific movies, TV shows/episodes or short films.
There will be regularly scheduled online meet-ups on Google Hangouts, for those who can’t make the in-person meetings, due to location or circumstance. Finally, there will be regularly social occasions in and around London, including trips to cinemas and screenings.
