Glasgow University Screenwriting Society
Our society was formed in order to establish a creative community where people from all different skill-types, experience and knowledge levels can learn how to write a screenplay and then put their new knowledge into practice through group activities and workshops. Our aim is for all our members to grow and learn in collaboration with their fellow writers.
We meet on campus every Tuesday of the academic year. Our normal meetings involve a presentation by one of our committee members on some aspect of screenwriting or storytelling in general, whether that be format, structure, characterisation, dialogue etc., followed by a group activity designed specifically so that we can all hone in the skills or practices involved in the presentation. On top of that, we host monthly table read sessions, where our members get to submit their scripts, have them read out loud by other members, and receive helpful feedback.
Additionally, we have various other types of events spread throughout the year, such as quizzes, game nights and socials, all revolving around films and TV series. Finally, we host special events, such as showcases and competitions, and we take part in external film festivals like the 48 Hour Film Project, in which we won awards for Best Writing and Best Film in 2021, among others.
If you are interested in learning how to turn your story ideas into tight and gripping scripts, or meeting with creative types and becoming involved in the Glasgow filmmaking scene, then this is the society for you! Everyone is welcome and you can be as involved as you wish throughout the year!
The easiest way to get in touch with us is by email, or a message on our Facebook page.
