Writing Soap

f96ddb0f-9b13-445b-94b0-edfb6de41c73

TV soap operas have provided opportunities for many writers, and you could become one of them – but you will need to know how to go about it. How to go about it is the theme of Chris Thompson’s new book, and he tackles his subject at two levels: the business level and the creative level.

In business terms you will need to know who to approach and how to make that approach. At the creative level you will need to know how soap operas are structured and what the producers are looking for.

Chris Thompson’s book explains how a soap opera production team works, who does what, and who you should approach to sell yourself. And he also gives a thorough briefing on how soap scripts work and how you, as a writer should approach them. He does this with plenty of examples – many from Emmerdale for which he writes on a regular basis.
