London Screenwriters Festival 2013

The London Screenwriters Festival ended a couple of weeks ago and already the emails telling me to sign up for next year’s festival have arrived. I’ve had time to think a bit about whether it was worth it or not.

First, the price. It’s £260, that’s quite a lot for a conference but then there was a wealth of speakers and producers from Hollywood, indies, the BBC, Sky and more. They get fed and pampered on your behalf, but for the price of a short holiday you are paying to spend long days listening to others – and talk. Oh, the talking.
