Man with Book

Draft to Done Story Consultations

Let's finish that screenplay or manuscript, together.

 

It's time for some Story Therapy.

Our creative projects are our children. And sometimes, our kids need help.

You need the outside perspective of an expert.

Proven tools to help your piece grow.

You need someone who gets it.

What you don't need is a critic. I'm not here to tear you or your work down. And I'm not here to replace your story with my own.

Together, we'll locate your project's unique beauty

and make it the best version of itself.

After working together, my brilliant clients have gone on to...

Sundance Film Festival

A distribution deal from IFC Films

Variety's Best Picture Contender List

The Criterion Collection

The Black List Features Lab

WScripted Cannes Screenplay List

Sundance Institute Screenwriters Lab

So show me what you've got, whether it's a full draft or a few scenes. We'll take your project to the next level -- and have fun doing it.

By the end of our hour-long coaching call, you'll have:

An action plan

Your easiest next steps so you can get revising, joyfully

A story map

A bird's eye view of your plot, characters & themes to help you streamline your story & move your audience

A strengths list

So you don't lose sight of what makes your story important

Success Stories

Working with Seth helped me organize my thoughts after the arduous task of knocking out a new draft on a feature I've lived with for three years. Seth provided many options to move forward and strengthen my structure and character relationships. He was open and easy to work with - easily adapting to what I was having issues with! I look forward to working with him in the future.

Seth is by far the best writing teacher I've ever had. I've really leveled up as a writer over the past year, and a big part of that has been his guidance, feedback and encouragement.

Heather Spilkin (When We Rise: The People Behind the Story; Breaking & Entering, Winner: Best Web Series Episode, Portland Comedy Film Festival)

Seth's perspective and clarity are such a gift to have as a screenwriter/artist. After receiving "helpful" feedback from a myriad of industry professionals, it's been so helpful to have Seth look at my work and give feedback that's simple, straightforward, and actionable. He's my not-so-secret weapon from here on out!

Ekwa Msangi (Farewell Amor, IFC Films; Official Selection: Sundance Film Festival; a Variety 2021 Oscar Best Picture Contender)

Seth enriched the first two seasons of my series with his wonderful analysis of character arcs, offering improvements that made better characters and a more coherent story, all without intruding on my own, personal voice.

Erik Saras (Marsfall, Podbean Top 10 Fiction Podcast & Webby Award Honoree)

I loved working with Seth, exploring ideas and stories I didn't even know I had in me. Both the quality and the quantity of my storytelling increased. I felt more of my authentic self on the page because of Seth's guidance and encouragement.
