Script Surgery

Writing is, by nature, insular work. Therefore, it's important that we share our work with fellow writers before we share it with the rest of the world. Often another pair of eyes can pose the questions and challenge the viewpoints which can push us towards a better piece of writing.

WRITER-TO-WRITER DEVELOPMENT MEETINGS

My Script Surgery is a constructive and professional writer-to-writer script feedback service. These private project development meetings can take place either in person over a coffee or via Zoom; either way, I will dedicate time to help you advance your working draft.

 

How does it work?

I will read your work and make a list of points to discuss in a one to one feedback meeting. These will generally highlight areas that are working well, areas that I think might need attention, as well as any questions I might have about the piece. Scene by scene we will discuss the themes, issues, and plot points at the centre of the work, covering structure, form, dialogue, and characters. To close our session, together we will identify the key areas to address in your next draft.

Rates

$200 (USD) Full-length plays and screenplays

$150 (USD) One-act plays and half-hour pilots

$100 (USD) Ten-minute plays and short films

Script Surgeries include my time to read your script and prepare notes ahead of our meeting, as well as the meeting itself.

Let's talk!

If you would like to book a surgery, please contact me via the contact page and tell me a little about yourself and your script. Please do not send any scripts in the first instance. Once I receive your email I'll reply and we can make a plan to meet or schedule a Zoom call. At this stage, I will send you a link to pay for your surgery via PayPal and ask for the latest draft of your work.
