Screenplays form the starting point for most dramatic films, the essential work from which all other filmmaking flows. All of the tender romance, terrifying action and memorable lines begin at the screenwriter’s desk.
The University of East Anglia’s School of Literature, Drama and Creative Writing have built this course with instructors and recent alumni from their course in Creative Writing.
You’ll learn from a mixture of basic theory, script analysis and practical exercises. You will explore key principles as they’re expressed in great films, then immediately apply these concepts. Videos, articles and discussion steps will offer you the opportunity to learn and engage with other learners on key concepts and ideas.
How to apply: This free online course is now open to join at any time. Register now on the FutureLearn website.
Deadline: None posted

I’m trying to join the free screenwriting course with Future Learn. I’ve just changed my password and the new page asks for 44ukp. Not sure what I’ve done wrong?
I’ve just checked this out and it does look as though they have changed things and now charge for their courses sadly. We’ll amend the post.
