The Top 10 Mistakes Novice Screenwriter’s Make
comes out soon!

    Welcome to the Scriptcake Podcast!

    The Scriptcake Podcast is designed to help you avoid the common pitfalls most novice screenwriters make. In addition to constructive lectures on screenwriting, we will have interviews with screenwriters, producers, directors and teachers who will share their expertise with you.

    We cover feature-length screenplay development and writing. Following a one-size fits all approach to screenwriting doesn’t work. You can’t just answer a few questions or 15 points or 22 steps and expect your script to be amazing. It doesn’t work that way. We focus on helping you develop your voice as a screenwriter and write screenplays only you can write.

    If you want to learn how to write your first screenplay, then you’ve come to the right place. Are you ready? Then let’s get started.

    We are happy to offer the Scriptcake podcast for FREE. Listen Now on iTunes, Spotify and Google Podcasts.
