Service Description

SCREENWRITING: I have been writing screenplays since 2008 and have five completed scripts. I learned the craft by attending screenwriting workshops, writing conference seminars, reading books, participating in critique groups, attending pitch festivals, and watching movies. I am actively marketing my completed screenplays and have them out to several producers.

I am quite familiar with three-act structure, character arcs, screenplay format, questions to ask yourself before beginning a script, outlines, treatments, synopses, one-sheets, etc. My experiences as a multi-genre writer feed into my expertise as a screenwriter. I will be teaching a beginning screenwriting workshop at a writers conference in 2014. Not only have I critiqued others' scripts in groups, but I've also critiqued screenplays as part of my freelance writing and editing business.

EDITING: I am a full-service writer and editor and can get the job done for you quickly and accurately. I am easy to work with and follow instructions well. Your project will shine after I am through with it. As a detail-oriented, task-driven person, I will enjoy great satisfaction when I complete your job.

Writers need feedback on their work before publishing or approaching agents and editors. I can analyze your piece and tell you what works and what doesn't. I will also give suggestions on how to improve your writing.

Don¿t let bad grammar, spelling or poor structure block your message. Even a good writer needs an editor's...
