5 Writing Tips for Becoming a Fantastic Screenwriter

Screenwriting is an art form, and our degree can help you unlock your creativity…

Do you dream of turning your creative ideas into a Hollywood movie or a hit series? Writing for the screen is one of the most rewarding jobs in the entertainment industry, because you get to watch your stories come to life.

Many writers work in the background and take joy in seeing their imaginations on display through amazing productions and acting talent. If you love writing, the University of Bolton’s BA Hons Screenwriting and Media Production degree could be for you.

Our undergraduate course teaches you all the basic skills to succeed in film, TV and multi-platform media, with a big focus on writing and creativity. Here are some top writing tips to help you become the best in the game.

1. Start writing

It seems simple enough, but good writing is all about practice, and it’s also about expression. Learning to express yourself freely is the key, so write about anything and everything. Write poetry, write short stories, or write interesting quotes. Having a little black book of thoughts and ideas is one of the best writing tips if you often get stuck for inspiration.
