SPECIAL GUEST: David Baboulene
David is a leading story consultant for film and television. He is also a published author of nine books, a scriptwriter and filmmaker in his own right, and a Ph.D. academic of story theory. His research into the workings of narrative has proven how the power of every story lies in the way it resonates with a human mind. Writers must work with knowledge gaps and subtext to trigger a psychological response. He has spent two decades defining the substance of story and developing a set of tools and methods for understanding and harnessing the power in a story. Make sure you don't miss this golden opportunity to power up your stories! You can find out more about David at www.baboulene.com

On graduating Sue initially worked in radio, later moving to television where one of her roles was to read and report on proposals and synopses for potential production. Sue has since studied screenwriting at the City Literary Institute in London. She is currently writing a TV series and is developing a number of other TV and film projects.
Christine is a content strategist and copywriter. She worked as a journalist at the BBC and a homepage editor for Yahoo before setting up her creative agency, Crocstar.

Christine became interested in screenwriting after writing several short stories and is currently working on a feature film idea.
Beattie is the arts correspondent for a local magazine, but has aspirations to be a screenwriter. She says she "has many ideas, and story arcs in my mind but I lack discipline. I’m working on it."
