Customized, practical Story Plan so your next draft stands out

We’re in the company of every great writer when we think:

My screenplay might be suffering from plot inconsistencies, weak character development, a sagging structure, the list goes on…

In your Customized Story Plan, I will:

A) Identify what’s gone wrong and explain why;
B) Provide you with a practical, easy-to-follow roadmap to solve your story issues;
C) Answer any questions that come up while you knock out your next draft!

I can reduce your workload and anxiety while giving you the inspiration and encouragement you need to get your script one step closer to being read and produced.

What I do differently

I approach your project from every angle and come up with a Story Plan that will work to make your story resonate with readers and audiences.

I point out story issues with explanations that make sense and I offer alternative ways to solve those nagging story problems.

I don’t limit the depth and breadth of my analysis to page numbers.

I am open to answering any further questions so you don’t feel abandoned and confused.

I care about the stories you want to tell and I support you as a writer.

Sample Story Plans are available on request.


I am your guide in fixing your story problems and getting your screenplay reader ready

I am a screenwriter. One of my screenplays ‘Off the Beaten Path’ was a Second Rounder at Austin Film Festival Screenplay Competition. Another one is currently a Second Rounder for The Orchard Project Episodic Lab.

Two of the films I’ve worked on as a script consultant are Francis Annan’s Escape from Pretoria starring Daniel Radcliffe, and Erol Mintaş’s Song of My Mother Winner of Best Film at 2014 Sarajevo Film Festival.

A member of The International Federation of Film Critics (FIPRESCI) and a Berlinale Talents Screenwriters alumna since 2009, I participated in international film festivals (Cannes and Berlin among others) as a film critic and served as a juror at national film festivals in Turkey and my local BendFilm Festival (Oregon, USA).

I’m honored to be supporting the festival circuit as an Associate Programmer for the Narrative Features Program at BendFilm Festival.

I love studying film! I hold a B.A. and an M.A. in Film & TV Production from UK Universities.

2020 is my year of rewrites. I’m rewriting and endlessly tweaking four of my feature-length screenplays and an episodic TV project, in addition to researching for a new script.

When not screenwriting and festival programming, you can find me script writing and video producing for The NW Collective in Bend, Oregon, and taking care of my two sons alongside a husband whose availability for childcare and cooking is what makes all of the above possible.

In any case, I have a knack for this. So try me!

Why a Story Plan

You probably know exactly what is wrong with your work, but you just can’t seem to figure a way out of the complicated machinery of storytelling.

And you need to break through that lost feeling with fresh ideas and inspiration.

Why choose me as your Guide

I offer you exactly what I would want from my dream Story Magician:

 

 

A) identify the issues in detail but don’t dwell on the problems,

B) give you a step by step roadmap to address those issues creatively with several examples and potential pathways,

C) make you feel well-equipped, inspired, confident and eager to write the story you want to write.

If this is what you want, I might be the right guide for you. Check out what some of my clients have said about working with me below.
