Screenplay Consultation & Coaching

SERVICE DESCRIPTION

Often the story in our head does not translate into an effective screenplay (yet.) It's such hard work, we would like to believe the script is finished. But is it? Are you sure?

Even seasoned professional screenwriters can get a nagging feeling something isn't quite there and seek feedback from colleagues.If someone in the industry wants to read your screenplay, it better be "ready for prime time"!

I love helping fellow and sister screenwriters push their own limits and gain new insight and passion for their own writing.

After I read your script I'll provide written notes and have an honest conversation with you about both the strengths and weaknesses, with suggestions on how to turn the weaknesses into strengths.

Benefits:

Honest and compassionate feedback

Identify strengths and weaknesses

Inspiration for an effective rewrite

Laurie Lamson

Was honored to share my passion for screenwriting as the host for ISA's free telecons for four years. I truly enjoy encouraging and helping my fellow screenwriters take their projects to the next level. Producers and writers alike have said how much they value my in-depth notes and consulting on their projects.

I've written 100 produced film, video and audio scripts for education, entertainment and marketing, included the gritty feature GUITAR MAN which has earned 17 film festival wins, including two for the writing. Have an optioned TV series currently being shopped, and developing a comedy feature with another producer. 

As co-editor of Now Write! Screenwriting and Now Write! Mysteries, and editor of Now Write! Science Fiction, Fantasy and Horror, I've been fortunate to interview contributors on the ISA telecons and have them on Now Write! panels, as well as create and lead my Soulful Screenwriting workshop

WRITE WITH CONFIDENCE AND CLARITY!


Compassionate Story Consultation, Coaching, Editing and Proofreading With Now Write! Editor Laurie Lamson.


IF YOU CAN THINK AND TALK, YOU CAN WRITE.


I don’t believe writing is a rarified skill.  Sometimes the most compelling material comes from ‘untrained’ writers. And professional writers struggle with the same things novices do:

  • finding clarity about your story and what you’re trying to say

  • trusting your own voice

  • allowing yourself to write about uncomfortable subjects

  • connecting with emotions and telling emotional truth

  • fear of criticism and taking it personally

  • keeping momentum going when your inspiration lags

  • knowing or finding out the necessary elements of a great story

  • learning the conventions of your writing area/genre

TAKE YOUR WRITING TO THE NEXT LEVEL.  


What sets professional writers apart is that they courageously grapple with all the above  - without giving up.  They learn to engage their passion and get out of their own way to share their unique gifts through writing.


COMPASSIONATE SUPPORT AND ASSISTANCE.


Working with me, my fellow writers learn to be less critical of their work and open up realms of possibility, develop their voices and become more productive in their writing.  I’ve been honored by how much screenwriters and authors have valued my input, which helped them take their projects to the next level – and to completion.
