Writer Biography - Emma Tennant

I became passionate about creative writing at 7 when I was introduced to The Chronicles of Narnia at primary school. After reading, the works of C.S. Lewis, I, along with the other students, were asked to write our own short stories. 
 In 2014, I picked up Media Studies as a GCSE exam which I completed in 2016. My first Media Studies teacher showed me how to write screenplays, inspiring me to produce my own for coursework. Since learning about screenwriting I have found a love for the craft and now actively engage with writing for film and television, but am yet to receive the rights to have anything produced. Recently I completed a Master's degree in Film at the University of Essex. In my first year of university, I completed a screenplay, used in a student short film project.
