"I actively sought out a mentorship with Jason Mirch after taking several of his screenwriting workshops. He is a phenomenal mentor, is incredibly supportive, and genuinely cares about helping me succeed. When I am talking to Jason about a scene or even just a general idea, he has this knack for finding the hidden gem and bringing that to the surface. I’ve worked with him on everything from a brand new idea all the way to revising a completed script. He has amazing ideas at every stage." - Deb B.
