Who else wants to write for the 'soaps'? 'Soaps' like Eastenders, Coronation Street, Emmerdale, Casualty, Holby City, and of course the ever-popular Archers on BBC Radio 4 all need new storylines to keep them fresh and that means new writers. It really could be your lines being uttered by an actor in a scene on tv or radio. This book explains how: * continuous drama is made and the role of the script writer * to write for established characters in a 'soap' * to develop your writing style so that it becomes compelling writing People who should buy include: * All students of creative writing in colleges and universities * College and university central and department libraries * Teachers, tutors and lecturers * Public and reference libraries * General readers, older creative writers who attend Caerleon, Swanick et al Product details Paperback: 165 pages Language: English ISBN: 978-1842851180 Product Dimensions: 21.1 x 13.5 x 1.3 cm 5.0 out of 5 stars A Masterclass By Angela M. Churmon Format: Paperback| Verified Purchase If you have an ambition to write for any of our much loved soaps you have to buy this book. It's professional, accessible and covers everything you need to know. I read it in one sitting, cover to cover and it's now a permanent feature on the corner of my desk, a top knotch reference book. Chris gives examples of storyline documents, scene by scenes, scripts and goes through the whole process from start to finish. He also gives an invaluable insight into how soaps work from the inside out. It is a Masterclass on paper. 5.0 out of 5 stars By Don Bledsoeon - The last book I could find on structuring and writing soap opera or continuing dramas was written about 10 years ago. This is current and most of the referenced programs are still on the air. It's been very helpful in writing my own web series show in setting up storylines and writing scenes that follow it.
