Welcome to...

Barbara Slade
Writer, Creator and Teacher

After two decades as a writer and producer in the film and television industry, I am now embarking upon my lifelong dream, and that is to inspire you and help you to bring your own stories to life!

On my website you’ll find a wide variety of exciting one-day workshops as well as a selection of really helpful free content, such as my regular blog 'Story Tip Tuesday' plus a series of ongoing videos that you'll find on my YouTube channel.

Whether you’re already working in the business or an absolute beginner, my goal is to help you gain a solid understanding of your craft, and become the successful writer you've always wanted to be.

 

I can’t wait to meet you!
