Our Team

Screenwriters Network (SWN) is an organisation founded in 2017 by a collaboration of award-winning and produced screenwriters in Hampshire, UK.

After much frustration at many low-quality consultancy service and screenwriting competitions, SWN was born as a passion project between friends. A few years later SWN has now developed into a support network for screenwriters to experience and garnish real value from both our script consultancy services and the SWN Screenplay Competition.
