London Screenwriters Festival 2012

It's back! Biggerer and betterer than ever! Yes, ever since Chris Jones and his team took over the reins from the Cheltenham Screenwriters Festival in 2010, the London Screenwriters Festival has become an unmissable fixture in the screenwriting calendar.
It's held during the last weekend in October (that's 26th, 27th and 28th this year) at the lovely Regent's College in Regent's Park, London. As ever, they've got a great set of talks and speakers lined-up, such as Mike Leigh, Simon Beaufoy, Noel Clarke, James Moran, Gub Neal, to name just a few high-profile hitters. Check out the full list here (*cough* I'll be there, too!).

October might seem like a way off yet but now's the time to start thinking about going to the festival. Tickets sell out pretty quickly. It's not cheap to attend but you do get a lot of bang for your screenwriting buck over the jam-packed weekend. To help ease the load, you can get £22 off the ticket price by using *discount code SCRIPTWRITINGUK.

So, have a look at the website, check out the speakers and what's on, decide whether you want to be there, and use the discount code to get £22 off. Hopefully see you there!

*I get a commission every time this code is used, which helps to pay for my travel/hotel expenses while I'm at the festival.
