Hi, thanks for contacting me. I work with lots of writers, screenwriters, TV writers, and novelists, and nonfiction authors. I'm a Career Coach (and also have a license to practice psychotherapy -- which I also do with writers). I have some free offers:
Free Screenwriters Cheat Sheet/10 Best Resources
I have a blog called Hollywood Therapy. Check it out for free advice and Hollywood Life Hacks. Heres the link
Join my Facebook Group LA Creative Professionals. That's free, too. I and other writers will answer your questions.
So most of my writer clients are looking for advice about writing and how to sell their scripts. And script-doctoring. I have TV writers who are writing pilots and spec scripts (like Modern Family , Game of Thrones, etc) but need help getting it into professional shape.
I do read scripts and offer advice. I work with my clients on multiple projects, at the beginning, at the outline stage, to get them into a solid structure, in the middle, (helping with scene work, rewrites), motivation to write, or after the script is written. Plus I just offer general advice on how to get a Hollywood job.
I've had lots of Hollywood jobs, like being a production assistant, a story analyst (reader) for the studios, tv writer, staff writer, showrunner, Exec Producer, Creator, Screenwriter.
I charge $300 to read, evaluate and give you an hour of feedback -- of constructive criticism, helping you find answers to will only improve your script. Beyone that, I charge $100 per hour for further coaching. ($90 per hour for you)
I'm there at any point, with advice, and creative input. I'll help you get your outline structured so you don't need to start over. When I read a 120 page script, I take 2 to 3 hours to read and make notes, then a third hour for phone feedback with you. Ask questions, I'll work with you, brainstorm, etc.
I've been there, got shows on the air, sold scripts, did rewrites, developed shows and screenplays. There's a lot of advice that isn't in books or blogs. That's why writers work with me. I've done it all before, so I can show them what they're doing wrong. And, people out there are doing it wrong!!
Consider the cost of film school $80,000. Consider a life without selling a script.
I coach people on how to make writing a lifetime pursuit.
Let me know if I can help. I do offer a free phone consult, call 310-850-4707.
