Industry Professionals often cite full-time screenwriting courses as one of the best ways into the industry. A full time couse will not only improve your writing but help you develop professionalism and confidence as a writer.

In addition, full-time courses allow you to build a portfolio of work in various forms and genres e.g. feature films, radio plays, television drama etc.

MAs are also a popular choice since they last just one or two years, can be taken part time, and tend to be more industry focussed.
