Our story writing workshops are run by BAFTA winning Screen Writer Barbara Slade. 


Born in Los Angeles, Barbara began her screenwriting career in London when her first show, Brown Bears Wedding starring Helena Bonham Carter, Joss Ackland and Hugh Laurie aired on ITV, Christmas Day. It sold to numerous territories around the world and was nominated for five Emmy awards, including Best Writer. Barbara has also written and developed children's series for Nickelodeon, Disney, ABC, Fox and other networks. She has written features for Working Title and Disney and has received numerous awards, including a BAFTA and a Humanitas for one of her episodes of Rugrats, among others. 


Barbara has worked for the Disney Channel UK, NRK’s Comedy Channel in Oslo, Norway and consults with production companies around the world and she specialises in developing and heading up TV shows for the international market, but also lectures and teaches screenwriting and development. 


These fun, yet intensive workshops are perfect for everyone, whether you’re a seasoned writer or just beginning, and will leave you feeling inspired and ready to write! 


The next series of Workshops will start in October. We’ll be releasing details soon, so check back here or on our Facebook page to find out more.
