Can’t seem to find the motivation to start blogging about your favourite movies? Wish to write more substantially than just a one-liner review? Enter the world of movie journaling – where you are free to set your own writing pace, learn to write more critically and decide on a platform best suited for showcasing your work. The workshop will introduce critical approaches to writing about film, the dos and don’ts of penning reviews, and ways to tackle the dreaded ‘writer’s block’. You will also get to analyse and edit sample reviews, workshop your own review, and devise a personalised plan to write more consistently and critically.
The 5-hour programme is most suited for participants who like to start a basic WordPress or Letterboxd account to journal their movie musings. Those who have existing accounts or use other platforms are also welcomed!
