Our new MA in Screenwriting is designed to equip you with the knowledge and tools to become a working screenwriter in the film and television industries.
Alongside acquiring the foundational craft skills that will enable you to produce a varied portfolio of work (from a calling-card short screenplay to an original feature screenplay or TV pilot), you will develop an unrivaled knowledge and understanding of the business of screenwriting from pitch presentations to commissioning.
In accordance with the Raindance philosophy of learning through practice, you will have opportunities to collaborate with producers and directors both within and outside of the Raindance community to test and progress your writing at every stage of development.
The MA in Screenwriting is divided into six modules:
The MA in Screenwriting with Raindance provides training embedded in an industry setting. The programme provides you with the resourses to prepare for and build a career in screenwriting, with tailored professional guidance and training that will develop and hone your craft skills for the film and TV industries.
In addition to lectures and seminars dedicated to topics such as narratology, world-building, character development, and dialogue, you will receive instruction and mentorship from working screenwriting and filmmaking professionals to assist you with the development of your own film and TV projects.
Through workshopping, pitching, storylining, story editing, and negotiating sessions, you will be exposed to the rigours and realities of the life of the professional screenwriter, empowering you with a greater understanding of the pathways available to you.
