5.0 out of 5 stars A great read.Reviewed in the United Kingdom

An excellent step-by-step guide for published and unpublished screenwriters. I’m really looking forward to completing my first ever ‘calling-card’ TV script. This book by Steve Wetton will be most helpful when completing my first script.

Helpful and clear

Sarah Gilani 5.0 out of 5 stars An excellent book/guide Reviewed in the United Kingdom 🇬🇧

I would recommend this book to anyone wanting to start writing TV scrips, but really anyone can use it as a guide. I found it a really useful start but I’m going to use it as a reference book too. I thought the writer seemed really sincere – it’s hard to find people in this industry who are sincerely wanting to support new writers – without any strings attached (I think), other than buying the book of course.
