Group Mentorship - Program Details

Limited to only 5 writers, in this special Group Mentorship you won't just receive feedback on your script, but also individual coaching on your pitch, your marketing strategy, and your next steps as you take your screenwriting career to the next level!

You will have the opportunity to share your material with your classmates so that each writer will learn from their own feedback and the feedback given to their peers. You'll also be able to email the host during the week so you are fully guided for the entire month.

Program Schedule

MEETING #1 - INTRODUCTION & SCRIPT REVIEW #1 
Your mentor will read your full script prior to the first session and will give each writer 20-30 min. of notes. Get personalized feedback on your pages and ask your mentor any questions about your script and the industry! 

MEETING #2 - WRITERS’ CHALLENGE + PITCH ROUNDTABLE
Your mentor will assign a writing prompt of their own design to see how you adapt to a "writing assignment"-like scenario. Following feedback & discussion of the Challenge submissions, you'll have the opportunity to test out the verbal pitch for one of your projects with your mentor and peers.

MEETING #3 - SCRIPT REVIEW #2
Your mentor will read another full script prior to the session - it's your choice to get a second round of notes on your script to really make it shine or work on an entirely different script altogether!

MEETING #4 - NEXT STEPS CLINIC + PITCH ROUNDTABLE
Your mentor will review a one-pager of your bio, loglines, any traction, and questions about where you're at and what you should focus on next when it comes to your screenwriting career. Get actionable career advice on what your next steps should be, plus you'll have the opportunity to get final thoughts on your reworked verbal pitch!
