It's a guide that's less about the craft of screenplay writing and more about being a working script writer. There are lots of books about rare occurrences of someone "selling it big." This book is about being part of the hard-working majority, not a one-off fluke.

    Short, practical and to-the point, this book delivers on its promise to focus on the realities of writing for a living in the UK. Every Creative Writing student in the country should be forced to read this prior to graduation!
