Female Screenwriters Needed For M.A. Research

9th August 2010 by Maura McHugh

Nicola Depuis is currently doing an M.A. in Women’s Studies at University College Cork in Ireland, and has chosen to research Female Screenwriters for her thesis.

I am interested in learning about female screenwriter’s working habits as well as the influences that have shaped their characters and storylines. I am interested in learning about how women screenwriters are treated within the industry and if there is room for new narrative structures in a patriarchal industry.

Female screenwriters have been completely overlooked by academic circles and I am hoping that my research will provide us with a genuine insight into the lives of female screenwriter’s today.

If you are interested in being interviewed or contributing to my research, please contact me at:

I would also like to invite all Irish female writers to join the following Facebook group which is a closed private group dedicated to allowing Irish female screenwriters to communicate with each other on a regular basis.
