The Working Writer

The Writers ' Guild presents The Working Writer (Edinburgh Festival)

Okay, the producer likes your work, you’ve sold your script, you’ve got the job - now you’re a fully paid up working writer. But it’s your idea, your vision, your baby, so are you a just an employee or a real partner in a creative collaboration?

What can your producer expect for their buck? How does the industry define the terms and conditions for creative work? Who owns who, and what?

Chaired by Andrea Gibb (Dear Frankie/Afterlife) on behalf of The Writers' Guild, a panel of producers, screenwriter and agents will discuss the basis for their working relationships and consider whether a standard industry contract has real relevance in a creative environment.

The panel will include Claire Mundell (The Brotherhood of the Book / Synchronicity Films) Alex Holdrige (US writer /director) Anita Cox (Head of Business Affairs, Scottish Screen).

The event is for industry delegates only and will be at The Sheraton Hotel, Edinburgh at 2pm on Saturday 18th August.
