I attended the London Screenwriters’ Festival last week. It was great to meet so many writers and catch up with friends.
It was also an incredible opportunity to hear some of the most talented writers and industry professionals talk about their work and give advice.
Graham Linehan was very inspirational – he was hilarious and so down to earth – exactly the kind of person you dream about working with.
David Hare was a bit intimidating as he was so passionate and serious about his work – but really someone to look up to.
Kate Leys and John Yorke gave some incredible talks, full of practical and intellectual advice about writing.
Overall it was a very welcome reminder of what I want to continue pursuing, making me feel inspired and driven to write even more.
