LPB at London Writers’ Week – From Stage to Screen with Freddie Machin

Led by playwright and screenwriter Freddie Machin, From Stage to Screen is a practical workshop which will explore the challenges presented in writing for these two different media. Drawing on the experience of adapting his debut stage play for screen, Freddie will lead participants through a series of exercises that will engage the visual imagination, highlight good structure, and encourage brevity in your writing. All levels welcome.

Freddie Machin is a playwright and screenwriter. Based on his play of the same title, Freddie wrote the feature film Chicken, which got its UK cinema release in May 2016. Mark Kermode included it in his best films of that year for the Guardian newspaper, and it received its network premiere on FilmFour. 

Freddie’s other plays include: The Real Estate, Candy Cansino Checks In (Italia Conti), Nailhouse (Old Red Lion), Winston on the Run (Edinburgh Fringe & UK Tour), The Revenge of Martha G. (Chichester Festival Theatre), Don’t Waste Your Bullets on the Dead (Vault Festival), Chicken (Southwark Playhouse). 

Freddie is a member of the Orange Tree Theatre Writers Collective 2018, and teaches writing for both stage and screen at City Academy. www.freddiemachin.com www.chickenthefilm.com @Freddie_Machin

London Writers’ Week 2018 announces its’ programme

London Writers’ Week is back for 2018 and we’re proud to announce that London Playwrights’ Blog is on board again as a partner!

London Writers’ Week, the annual week providing access to and showcasing the best new ideas going on in new writing in the UK and the new writing version of London Fashion Week, has announced its programme for 2018.

Having successfully raised money for the victims of the Grenfell Tower fire in 2017, supported by the Tabernacle Theatre and Bush Theatre, London Writers’ Week 2018 is dedicated to supporting organizations promoting diversity in the arts.

The week takes place from 18 July 2018 – 21 July 2018

the week’s 2018 theme is film and will include sessions on playwriting and film, digital media and film, television and film, film and other areas such as how to get and keep an agent.

The week is also announcing new partner The London Screenwriters’ Festival, who is joining the organisation’s group of partners who support the week’s aim to provide access to and showcase the best new ideas going on in new writing in the UK.

Highlights of this year’s London Writers’ Week include:


  • A session with BAFTA nominated writer and co-Chair of Film at The Writers’ Guild of Great Britain Andrea Gibb on The Writers’ Guild’s new campaign “Equality Writes” and advice for women who write for or would like to write for film.
  • Advice on writing for film from the Raindance Film Festival, the UK’s largest independent film festival, which has staged the UK premieres of films including “The Blair Witch Project”, “What’s Eating Gilbert Grape” and “Memento”.
  • Advice on getting and keeping an agent and how having an agent works from Kat Buckle, agent at Curtis Brown, one of the UK’s leading and most innovative literary agencies.
  • Advice on writing for film from the London Screenwriters’ Festival, the world’s largest professional screenwriting event.
  • A pitching workshop with Bob Shultz, founder of the Great American Pitchfest who works with the London Screenwriters’ Festival.
  • Advice on teaching and working with young people in terms of film from Into Film, who are leading the way in terms of film and young people.
  • A writing workshop and writers networking session run by the London Playwrights Blog on playwriting and film.
  • The Diversity School Initiative and Actor Awareness on increasing diversity in the arts.

Jennifer Tuckett, Director of London Writers’ Week said: “We are excited our fourth London Writers’ Week’s theme is film and that we are donating 100% of our profits to organisations promoting diversity in the arts. There has been a lot of discussion this year about diversity in the arts and we hope this year’s week will provide a useful programme of access to some of the best work and new ideas going on in terms of new writing and film in the UK, as well as raising money for an important cause.”

The organisations which will be supported by this year’s London Writers’ Week are The Diversity School Initiative, which campaigns for greater diversity in drama schools and whose board members include Vicky Featherstone, Artistic Director of the Royal Court Theatre, Actor Awareness, which campaigns for working class actors and writers and who recently made “The Acting Class” documentary with Maxine Peake, Christopher Eccleston and others, the London Playwrights Blog, an invaluable resource providing access to opportunities and advice, and University Women in the Arts, which aims to improve the transition from women studying the arts to working in the arts.

Join us for the all new LPW Online Book Club!

The LPW Online Book Club is just one of the things you can access if you become a member! Not a member yet? Well, if you want a jump start for your writing for the price of a cup of coffee, what are you waiting for? Sign up here today! (Want more reasons to join and a bit more info? Read this).

We’re changing the way we do Book Club…

Our online Book Club has been running for a few months now and we’ve read some diverse and brilliant plays – and taken part in some vibrant discussion! However, we haven’t had as many of you engaging with as we’d have liked, so recently we took to our Facebook group to ask our members how we could improve things…

We’ve your feedback on board and have come up with a new and improved version of Book Club!

Texts will be announced seasonally

One of the major things you wanted was plenty of time to get your hands on and read the play before the discussion, so we’ll now be announcing the texts in seasonal three monthly blocks.

How does it work? 

We’ll post a reminder of the chosen play at the start of each month.

Many of you found it tricky to join in the discussion when it was scheduled for a specific time, so instead, from the 15th of each month, discussion will open on our Facebook Group and stay open. You can dip in and out throughout the rest of the month as much or as little as you like, whenever is convenient for you.

All you need to do is read the play and come on over to our Members Facebook Group to join the discussion! Book club threads will be marked with the hashtag #bookclub, so it will be easy to find the discussion.

(Please note, to avoid spoilers for those who haven’t finished the play yet, any comments posted on our Facebook Group prior to 15th of each month will be deleted). 

When does it start? 

The next Book Club starts on 1 July 2018, where we’ll send out a reminder to read the text. The discussion will then open on our Facebook Group from 15 July 2018. 

What plays will we be reading this summer?  


July: A Midsummer Night’s Dream (William Shakespeare)

August: A Raisin In The Sun (Lorraine Hansberry)

September: Look Back in Anger (John Osborne)

Why not join us and get the chance to discuss plays with other playwrights and to get to know other LPW members? Find out more about joining here!
