TIME AND DAY: 10:00 AM - SUNDAY
ROOM: ROOM B

On adapting her hugely popular two day seminar WRITING THE HEROINE’S STORY exclusively for the London Screenwriters’ Festival, Helen Jacey had this to say: 

“I imagine a session which is broad enough to appeal to both female and male writers of varying experience, yet which gets people to question and discuss, while learning some creative ideas…”

Join Helen for this exceptional seminar in which writers can expect to: 

  • Explore their personal motivations for creating a female character.
  • Identify the ways their female character might represent ideas about women and femininity.
  • Develop an awareness of roles frequently associated with female characters and how to avoid stereotypical use of these in characterization.
  • Learn some new creative models for creating vibrant and stimulating female characters.


Presented in association with Women in Film and Television.
