“Screenwriting and Creative Writing are intrinsically linked in a variety of ways with areas such as narrative structure, character development and audience emotional engagement vital when developing creative projects within both areas of expertise. However, whilst Creative Writing allows aspiring writers to fill the page with prose, Screenwriting enables writers to edit these texts and concentrate more on dialogue and writing for a visual medium. The specific Screenwriting skills acquired whilst undertaking a joint honours course alongside Creative Writing at the University of Worcester provides writers with an unrivalled creative opportunity to work alongside Industry Professionals which allows their writing to thrive and truly really come alive.” Mark Holloway, Lecturer in Screenwriting
