Scripts & Stories
Welcome, my friend. I’m Abigail Webber, and I’m a Script Consultant and Editor with a ton of both teaching experience and industry expertise. I’ve worked in Film and Television, as a script editor, development executive and commissioner. And I’m a Lecturer in Scriptwriting and Film & Television Studies at the University of Northampton.
What I care about most is getting people writing. Too many of us hold back on our dreams, letting life get in the way and excuses pile up. If you’ve always wanted to write a screenplay – or if you’re already in love with the process but need some guidance and advice, I am here to help.
I work with scriptwriters at any stage in their story process, from those who are just starting out, to professionals needing an edit or a ‘fresh pair of eyes’ (see the Script Feedback section). So please, have a wander around. There are loads of tools and resources for writers here. If you’d like to chat, ping me an email. You can also book a free introductory call to find out more. I’m really excited that you’re here and I can’t wait to start working with you!
And, if you’re in Hertfordshire, why not book in a Writing Retreat? You’ll be amazed by how just a few hours of concentrated time can give your writing some rocket fuel! Details here.
JUST WRITE – MINI WRITING RETREATS
A chance to get away from distraction and just WRITE.
It’s a brilliant creative spur – and a lovely way to meet local fellow writers.
We’re based in Berkhamsted, Herts, so if you’re in the vicinity (Bucks, Beds)
why not come along for a morning or afternoon?
