23 Ways To Break Into The Business in 2023

Are you tired of  BS advice from pro writers like ‘just write something well enough and you’ll sell it’?? Or maybe you’re sick of seeing ‘no unsolicited material’ on producers’, agents’ or publishers’ websites … Or maybe you feel like the whole industry is a big Catch-22 con??

You asked B2W for a workshop with PROVEN strategies that actually work, so your wish is my command! I have put together a live Zoom workshop for you in conjunction with LondonSWF365. I detail not 5 or 6, 10 or 15 but TWENTY-THREE ways you can build your career! It runs for the first time on January 21st, 2023. CHECK OUT THE DETAILS HERE or click on the pic.

Breaking Into Script Reading

Breaking Into Script Reading is B2w’s flagship course, run in conjunction with London Screenwriters’ Festival. It next runs on February 26-26th 2023. 

Taking place annually, it’s now in its EIGHTH year! Originally held at historic Ealing studios, it’s now found its home on Zoom. This makes it more accessible to international Bangers, as well as those B2Wers who may struggle to make it to London.

Script Editing with Lucy V Hay

What’s the best job in the world … for me, it’s got to be SCRIPT EDITING! This is another ALL-NEW course for 2023, designed for writers who want to be script editors, or to understand how to protect their screenplays in the development process (or both!).

In this course you will learn how to bring all your story, character, structure and industry skills to help writers go from good to great to produced! Unlike script reading, it’s not just about suggestions and feedback, it’s all about face-to-face collaboration and sometimes even fingers on keyboards story-crafting.

This new course is perfect for those writers who have done my script reading class, have worked as script readers and/or have done beta reading/peer review with other writers and now want to get to the next level regarding their craft.

Write Your First Novel And Get It Published


Want to write a novel? Here’s some GREAT news: if you are already a screenwriter, your ability to pivot your skillset into writing a novel will set you way ahead of the competition. Since ‘screenwriting is structure’ this can be a HUGE advantage when it comes to writing novels. We tend to be plotters with greater awareness of important issues such as genre, pace and structure. So why not go for it, with an established novelist like Lucy V Hay to shed light on how to do it!
