Getting into script writing can be a challenge, if you do not have contacts in the industry then getting your foot in the door is really hard. It is that old adage – employers want experience but how do people get experience in the first place if they do not get given a chance to gain experience?
You might have some luck through entering competitions that are looking for scriptwriters or there may be some opportunities for voluntary positions of writing scripts for amateur dramatics, for example. You can build up experience of scriptwriting whilst you are in school or college by getting involved with the plays/productions that the drama students perform but that is not always going to give you enough experience to get straight into working in TV or film scriptwriting.
Are there any other ways to get into script writing?
One avenue to try out is to submit your work onto a talent pool platform such as The Talent Bank. This allows you to showcase your script writing without the usual process of sending emails to every TV show you can find the email address for.
The Talent Bank is full of creative geniuses who are looking to take their next step towards making money for their work. If all you have ever dreamed about is writing the Eastenders or Love Island scripts then don’t give up on your dream until you have explored your options.
