You'll work on a range of scriptwriting assignments over the course of the year, from the short film to the feature film, television drama to television comedy, radio documentary to online drama. In the Cross-Platform unit, you'll shape your scriptwriting skills to suit a variety of media formats. Specific projects include a location-driven short film and a collection of scripts driven by character voice. The final Masters Production Project offers you the chance to develop a long-form piece of original writing or a portfolio of shorter scripts.

All practical work is underpinned by a rigorous academic grounding in areas such as narrative, authorship, audience and industrial contexts. You'll be encouraged to challenge current thinking and explore possibilities of scriptwriting practice, and be guided to develop a deep understanding of the evolving industry that you wish to go on and work in.

Taught by professionals and academics with a wide range of writing experiences, this course will allow you to develop your own authorial voice across a range of media platforms. You'll learn how to create, develop, write, edit and present your work effectively, and will graduate with a unique set of scriptwriting skills that will enable you to write successfully for a variety of media.
