Brisbane-based screenwriter Jacqueline Cook offers advice on how to make a career out of writing for the screen.

How did you get your job?
Well, it’s not really a job, per se – merely an obsessive passion for which I occasionally receive payment. As a lover of movies and a writer from the age of 8, it all began in 2000 when I was curious as to what a screenplay looked like. I did a short course and fell in love with the art of storytelling in film. No-one has found a way to stop me since. I have also written a non-fiction book which was recently accepted for publication by Random House Australia, due for release in November 2013 (www.facesofholzminden.com).
