Introducing Shark Tank

The Shark Tank was created by six passionate screenwriters fishing for valuable feedback on their scripts. As expected from six creative minds, a conventional theme was out of the question.

They got inspired by sharks circling their prey hungry for a captivating script. It started just among friends, but they quickly sparked the interest of the screenwriting community, and for good reason! The Shark Tank provides intermediate screenwriters with a fin-tastic opportunity to have their screenplay read from start to finish, receiving in-depth feedback on story, structure, dialogue, character and more.

Each submission sinks into The Tank for a virtual feedback session with three expert Sharks, offering you comprehensive insights from multiple perspectives. You’ll get to be a fish in a bowl as the Sharks discuss and analyse your script live, and be allowed out of the tank after around 25 minutes to ask questions. With three experts reviewing and commenting on your work, you’ll gain a well-rounded evaluation of your script’s strengths and areas for improvement.

After the session, you’ll receive up to two pages of detailed written feedback, equipping you with the know-how you need to refine and enhance your screenplay. Happy writing!

Meet The Sharks

Lorna

Lorna

Lorna is an award-winning screenwriter who loves all things comedy and drama and if you sprinkle in a bit of romance and sci-fi then you will have really hit her sweet spot.

She is only ever about 60% present in the real world because her brain likes to wander off on all sorts of adventures on its own. She has a penchant for thinking outside the box and asking annoying questions. Don’t say I didn’t warn you!

Mitra

Mitra

Mitra is a screenwriter who enjoys creating problems and exploring the why and how.

She has the uncanny ability to turn any story into a thriller and her most frequent phrase is ‘and then he/she dies’.

She loves thrillers, dark comedies, and, above all, stories that make her think for days later. Her non-writing hobbies include daydreaming, being active, and making needlessly complicated dishes only she enjoys.

Eva

Eva

Eva is a multi-faceted, multi-award winning, neuro-spicy creative who has worked in media for over a decade (alongside a host of other careers!) She has devised a way to truly blur the lines between hobby and work by monetising all of her many hobbies, which have therefore become jobs, so she has no hobbies.

Adoring Sci-fi television series, animation and all things funny, Eva is currently working on a sit-com script about a time-travel reality show (gone wrong). Eva is passionate about stories featuring relatable, quirky and diverse characters in imaginative universes.

Fiona

Fiona

Fiona is an award winning screenwriter who began her career working on large scale stage professional musicals Phantom of the Opera, Miss Saigon and Les Misérables before moving to screenwriting.

A reader for NYC midnight international competition and a podcast host for The Script Department’s Women in Screenwriting and TypeCast shows Fiona is also a development coordinator in the Script Department’s Writing Room.

Fiona has worked with Screen Yorkshire in their script editing programme and has been commissioned to write theatre, short films and TV, and loves writing stories about unusual women in unexpected situations.

Peter

Peter

Peter is a screenwriter and filmmaker with a lifelong passion for cinematic storytelling.

He loves reading books about film, eating croissant for breakfast and binge-watching world cinema. He has an eye for finding the poetry and inner magic within a script.

When he is not losing himself in a project or tending to his vintage screenplay collection, he can be found traveling around Ireland with his lively sheepdog Sam.

Helen

Helen

Writer and adjudicator for awarding bodies in the South West of the UK, Helen’s provided support to writers across the board at all stages.

  • Loves high-concept thrillers, period dramas, cake, and dark comedy.
  • A knack for reading between the lines and finding the connections that aren’t so obvious.

When she’s not immersed in the world of writing, she likes to swim in the sea (no really), walk her Collies, and eat cake.
