Why not give The Singularity a go?

I’m not drawn to Science Fiction as much as I’m attracted to Horror. But having giving it some fleeting and perfunctory thought, I realised that’s probably not the case.

Sci-Fi and Horror bleed into each other – consider the Alien films (the first one is by far the best). And as with Horror, there are multiple sub-divisions in Sci-Fi. Hard-core Sci-Fi leaves me cold, but I’m a massive fan of Kurt Vonnegut, ‘Never Let Me Go’ is a stunning novel & film, ‘The Forbidden Planet’ is one of my favourite films, ‘Torchwood:  Children of Earth’ – dreadful in the true sense of the word, and James White’s ‘Hospital Station’ and ‘Star Surgeon’ series of short-stories are a delight.

Impact50… So we now have judges feedback! And it’s REALLY good!

Our star judges have been sending their personal comments in to share with writers and here are a few…

Simon Kinberg (X-Men: Days of Future Past) said, “My favourite was actually perhaps the simplest one: MORE. i like the simplicity and clean emotionality of the storytelling, and how we all turn to children in moments of fear. it felt real and honest and like it packed a lot of emotion into so little time.”

Your First Holds a Special Place in Your Heart

I’m really hanging out my dirty laundry in this one. So please, be kind…

I, like many of you, was a writer from young, penning precocious Victorian tales, and angst-ridden sonnets about Ali G*.

However, while I was always an avid (addicted) TV watcher, I only discovered screenwriting a few years ago.

It happened in a caravan park in North Wales**, during a three-day science fiction convention.

Last Bank Holiday weekend the Create50 and LondonSWF along with key writers from The Impact50, locked themselves away and read the top 300 scripts submitted to the process.

The Entrepreneurial Screenwriter: live like there's No More Tomorrows

Back in 2014 I had a sudden delusion of grandeur and decided to produce one of my own scripts. No more would I simply dabble with screenwriting competitions, or help produce other writers' scripts - it was time for me to step into MY limelight!
