Career

Screenwriter

Screenwriters create scripts for television and film. They typically create and market their own work or are commissioned by production companies and television stations to write a script for a particular purpose. Screenwriters are expert at creating and developing plots and characters and have a thorough understanding of their audience or market. Often their work goes through several stages of review and may be reworked according to project requirements. There is no typical educational path to working as a screenwriter, though studies in English, writing, drama and other creative disciplines are often very useful and well regarded.
