Talent Campus Rocks! What a ride! By Sharon Axcell

Four individuals sitting in chairs, reading papers. The foreground shows a woman in a gray blazer focused on her document.

Even having read all the testimonials, reviews, the agenda… I wasn’t convinced. But something told me to go anyway. Something had to change. I’d been hidden away for too long. Been telling myself those stories, giving excuses – that my work wasn’t good enough… that I wasn’t “good enough”. It seems so cliché, yet I […]

Writer JK Murphy on her TC Journey… Californian Dreaming!

A group of people posing behind a line of fire on the ground, raising their arms and cheering, appearing excited and happy.

Flash back to the London Screenwriters’ Festival, 2016. During the festival’s closing presentation, I sat next to someone who said he was part of the Talent Campus. Newbie that I was, I had no idea what he was talking about. After reading up on it, it seemed to be composed of screenwriters who, although emerging, […]

My Life Post Talent Campus by screenwriter Jo Ragett

A woman dressed as Wonder Woman crosses her arms in front of her face, set against a dynamic background with fiery and cool-toned elements.

It’s been 9 weeks, 3 days, 10 hours and 44 minutes since my official Talent Campus journey ended. What a ride!! Nothing has changed in my life but EVERYTHING has changed! The most amazing thing that’s happened within those nine weeks is that I now have two, yes TWO, writing credits! No, I can’t believe […]

Talent Campus: Mentoring… One view from a mentee turned coach

A group of six people sit around a table with papers, notebooks, and coffee cups, engaged in a meeting in a room with beige walls.

If you are still on the fence about applying, now is the time to throw caution to the wind and just get that application in – what have you got to lose? You don’t HAVE to go, even if you get in, but you won’t have that choice, if you don’t apply. Talent Campus has had a massive impact on me and my writing and you can read about some of this…

Talent Campus 4.0 WARNING! Expect Intense Ignition by Scott Davenport

A woman with short hair stands with her raised arm extended towards a man wearing a plaid shirt while others observe in the background at an outdoor nighttime gathering.

I write this post from quite a raw place, just only hours after the “Ignition phase” has happened. In some ways this might be for the best.  During Ignition we were shown a path that could lead to a deeper understanding; not just of our scripts, but also of the storytellers delving deeper into ourselves. […]

Talent Campus Reflections by Danielle Wager… Apply next time!

A group of people seated in a circle, engaged in a discussion. Some are taking notes while others are speaking or listening attentively, with one person holding a smartphone.

Talent Campus is now open for submissions HERE. I wasn’t supposed to apply for Talent Campus this year, never mind get into it! I and my writing were nowhere near good enough I told myself. In my mind that was just a known fact. I’d looked at the application, and discussed it with my partner.  […]

Talent Campus 3.0: Licence to Write by Iris May

A man walks barefoot across a line of burning embers at night while a group of onlookers observes and photographs the event.

Talent Campus is now open for submissions… HERE. You couldn’t have convinced me that four days would be nearly long enough to transform me into the person I am today – a glowing, confident version of myself that I was unable to tap into a week ago. Yet here we are. A team of unstoppable […]

Talent Campus 3.0… Facing my fears by Leah Dike

A group of eight people sitting around a table with laptops and notebooks, engaged in a discussion in a meeting room.

Talent Campus is now open for submissions HERE. LSF 2016, John Yorke day. I was sat in the auditorium, minding my own business, when a crowd of people entered, whooping their heads off and waving their arms wildly. “Who are these fruit loops?” I wondered. When they had settled, (disturbingly close to me) I asked […]
