Screenplays by Craig Batty

Anthony Haynes writes: As we explained in a previous post, we don’t subscribe to the standard industry assumption that publishers’ websites should never mention books from other publishers. Craig Batty is a contributor to our most recent publication, Teaching Creative Writing. Here we’re pleased to showcase his new book, Screenplays.

Craig Batty writes: I’d like to tell you about a new book that I’ve just had published – Screenplays: How to Write and Sell Them.  It’s an accessible, comprehensive book aimed at those with a keen interest in writing feature film screenplays. Using case studies, creative exercises and insights from industry, the book guides readers through the key stages of developing and writing a screenplay, from sourcing ideas to developing characters and constructing scenes.

The book also explores how screenplays might be sold or used to raise interest in the writer, considering areas such as finding and working with an agent, networking, submitting to competitions, and raising private funding.

The films discussed include Notes on a Scandal, The Kids Are All Right, Mysterious Skin, Me and You and Everyone We Know and Ratatouille.  Enjoy!
