Renowned for its sweary ‘smack talk’, Bang2write is a writing and networking tips blog for screenwriters, novelists and freelance writers. B2W has been a finalist in the UK Blog Awards 2017; it was picked as 1 of the top 100 websites for writers by The Write Life in 2017 and 2018; plus it is in Feedspot’s top 10 screenwriting blogs, number 1 in the UK!
Focusing on genre, submissions, characterisations, social media and the general mistakes writers make, B2W aims to ensure writers have the tools to make informed decisions about their work and how they present it and themselves to the industry.
Bang2write also exists on most platforms beyond the main site, culminating in the B2W Facebook group, a closed and safe environment in which ‘Bang2writers’ can share ideas and their work. Join us!
Courses & Talks
In addition to blogging, script editing, script reading and writing books, Bang2write has hit the road doing talks and courses at festivals, schools, libraries, universities and more! Lucy teaches her annual course for LondonSWF, Breaking Into Script Reading at Ealing Studios every year – a course for wannabe script readers, or writers who want to see how their work might be judged ‘behind the scenes’.
