Our Story

Screenwriters Network (SWN) is a non-profit organisation founded in 2017 by a collaboration of award-winning and produced screenwriters in London, UK. 


After much frustration at many low-quality consultancy service and screenwriting competitions, SWN was born as a passion project between friends. A few years later SWN has now developed into a support network for screenwriters to experience and garnish real value from both our Script Consultancy Services and our SWN Screenplay Competition.

Our Mission

Our small but dedicated team strive to provide quality information and resources to screenwriters. Focusing on not only growing writers abilities, but representing them and providing them with ample exposure to progress their careers.

Our Team

Starting off with just three experienced writers that have collectively worked for all major broadcasters in the UK, we're proud to have expanded our team to six passionate and experienced writers.

Alex Edge

Alex has worked for companies such as MTV, Nickelodeon and Comedy Central. His roles and specialties in these companies lie in production and script consultancy. He has also had his scripts produced, including a feature-length; Fear of Fear.
