Script Writing - Beginners

Do you have a great idea for a film, TV show, or stage play?

Maybe you’ve tried your hand at script writing before and want to hone your craft with an industry professional? Or are you completely new to writing and looking to get inspired?

Our Script Writing Courses for Beginners will help you to form and develop your ideas into a first-rate script. You’ll work on technique, boost creativity and confidence, and above all have fun in these exciting group classes.

Script Writing Courses for Beginners Content

You’ll learn to:

  • Understand plot and narrative structure
  • Analyse the key components of classical dramatic narrative
  • Develop dramatic situations and scenes
  • Write engaging and entertaining dialogue, between well-realised characters
  • Trigger your imagination as a writer
  • Find your personal style and voice

Our Approach

Like all of our writing courses, you’ll receive friendly, constructive feedback from your teacher throughout the course. The opportunity to discuss and share your script ideas with a group of fellow writers can be an incredibly useful part of the creative process, helping you develop the style and scope of your writing.


Please note: fluency in English is required for this course. If you have any special requirements please inform our Customer Services Team prior to your course start date so we can ensure we cater for these needs. You can call us on 0207 042 8833 or email info@city-academy.com.

All City Academy tutors are experienced professionals from theatre, film/TV and performance industries. So whilst they're training you they may also be rehearsing for a West End show or working on a movie. We like that and we do believe it makes a difference in class.
