On the face of it Two Women is a slice of life drama, but once the context is revealed it could be described almost as a love story.

I have found FilmFreeway so easy to use and a great portal for finding appropriate festivals for my writing.

I have just started to properly break into writing and wanted to get some kind of feedback to see whether I could make the grade. I was overwhelmed by the feedback from Wildsound, it was so encouraging and has inspired me to persist in writing.
