    Gratuitous violence towards women on screen has been insidiously normalised, desensitising audiences and contributing to a culture in which the harassment and abuse of women is all too often dismissed, denied and even celebrated. This urgently needs to change. But how can we authentically portray the lived experiences of women without objectifying or dehumanising female characters and normalising violence? These guidelines are designed as a tool to help screenwriters stress-test their scripts.

    Here’s what clients say about working with ANNA

    ANGELA CLARKE, Best-Selling Author & Screenwriter

    ‘Anna’s passion, enthusiasm, and wealth of knowledge for screenwriting, and the industry, combined with her ability to identify and focus in on the heart of the story, and its emotional beats, made her an unparalleled script editor to work with. A true joy, she went above and beyond to hit a very tight deadline, I would wholeheartedly recommend her.’


    SAM BARON, Screenwriter-Director THE SCIENCE OF LOVE (Comedy Drama Feature)

    In Development with Rather Good Films (UK) Gary Foster (US), supported by the BFI

    'I can't recommend Anna highly enough. She has a wicked sense of humour and a brilliant eye for structure, plus the highest standards for emotional authenticity and a deeply character-driven approach to the whole process. She will push you to be as honest and daring as possible in your creative choices, and she will even make you feel like the good bits were your ideas. I can't wait to work with her again.'

    GUY WOOLF, Creative Director, REPRESENT. Theatre


    ‘Anna's workshop was completely unique in the way she distilled the complex and enigmatic art-form of writing to its fundamentals. Building character from scratch and using psychological frameworks to do so was such an accessible way in for us and our cast to begin working on developing our new play idea. I would work with Anna again in a heartbeat and recommend her to anyone.’



    Anna breaks down the core building blocks of creating a character and developing a working relationship to text and world-building. She creates a warm, light-hearted and playful environment that encourages you to put the theory into practice immediately. Would recommend both newcomers to writing and the more experienced as it is an invaluable refresher on how to create believable and three-dimensional characters.”
