Have you ever said, 'I'd love to write a script, but don't know where to start'? Or watched the latest binge-worthy Netflix series and thought you could do better?

Do Drama explores the how and why of writing drama, not as an instruction manual, but as a lively conversation with one of Britain's most prolific and successful screenwriters, Lucy Gannon. And she didn't write her first play until she was 39.

By sharing what she has learned over three decades of writing primetime drama, she will now help you, whether a novice or more experienced writer, to:

• Write your script from the first scene to the last
• Create vivid characters with a personality and a past
• Develop storylines, structure and write a treatment
• Understand how the industry works so you can take your next step

Writing drama is not about education, class or cleverness, it's about your deep desire to tell stories, to create characters, finding the humour alongside the pathos, to delight and enthral millions. There is no golden path into production. But the world is hungry for talent. You are the talent. So, what are you waiting for?

The Do Book Company

The Do Book Company is an independent publishing house based in Shoreditch, London. We produce a series of inspirational guidebooks in print and digital formats. Our books are written by speakers from the Do Lectures whose ideas have inspired others to go and Do. Our aim is to recreate that same positive change in book form – whether that’s the mastery of a new skill or craft, a simple mindshift, or a shot of inspiration to help you get started. Each book is fairly short, about 100 pages, as it focuses on the ‘doing’ rather than the background theory. Concise, practical guides that make it easier to Do stuff. A royalty of 5% from the proceeds of each sale will go back into the Do Lectures to help it achieve its aim of making positive change.
