Story, Screenwriting & Voice
Date: Friday 18th September 2020
Kate Leys is a script and story editor who has spent her entire life thinking about scripts, films and stories. She doesn’t write, direct or produce, and she doesn’t do much of anything else either, she just does this one thing: works with screenwriters and filmmakers on the stories they tell. This is the thing she knows about, and here is your chance to ask her anything you like. What even is a story, anyway? How does a script work? How do you find a character? What makes screenwriting different from other kinds of writing? Are there any shortcuts? What do you need to take with you when you set out to write a screenplay? What is a writer’s voice, and how do you know if you have one?
Or, literally, anything.
