About Lucy V Hay AKA Bang2write
Run by Lucy V Hay, Bang2write is a writing and networking tips blog for screenwriters, novelists and freelance writers.
Bang2write focuses on genre, submissions, characterisations, social media and the general mistakes writers make. We aim to ensure writers have the tools to make informed decisions about their work and how they present it and themselves to the industry.
Renowned for its sweary ‘smack talk’, Bang2write was picked as 1 of the top 100 websites for writers by The Write Life in 2017, 2018 and 2019. It has also been a finalist in the UK Blog Awards. It is in Feedspot’s top 10 screenwriting blogs, number 1 in the UK!
Bang2write also exists on most platforms beyond the main site, culminating in the B2W Facebook group, a closed and safe environment in which ‘Bang2writers’ can share ideas and their work. Join us!
