Providing a road map for the journey from idea through finished script
VOICES OF EXPERIENCE
Screenplay Consulting Services teams you, the screenwriter, with an experienced professional.
Between the three of us, we have worked as writer, producer, showrunner, script reader, story editor, president of production, University department chair, professor, actor, professional comedian, and author.
We know the art and craft of screenwriting, the journey your screenplay will take once you enter the submission, development, and production process.
We know the criteria by which screenplays are judged and the hidden trapdoors that can lead straight to development hell. We are script coaches, here to help you bring your idea to its best possible presentation.
Our services cover the entire range of the writing process, from initial conceptualization through final polish.
I was fortunate enough to attend two, five day classes Jule Selbo taught at the Cape Cod Writers Conference. What a fabulous experience! I was able to take my story from a conceptual idea to a significantly well defined screenplay. Jule is an enthusiastic mentor with tremendous insight and keen listening skills. I'll happily rely on her experience and wisdom whenever I need direction in my writing.

I have often said that John Schimmel is the best story executive in the business. He has an uncanny knack in developing and fixing narrative and character and in a collaborative field is often the only person in the room who can somehow fathom the solution to an intractable problem with either. John is an extraordinarily gifted story analyst and himself a vivid writer with a truly cinematic eye.

Working with Lilliana Winkworth is often the very best part of the writing process. She's organized, deeply insightful, and wholly dedicated to elevating everything she touches. She doesn’t miss a thing. She especially excels at character and comedy - but honestly, there’s nothing she can't help refine. Lilliana is the best!
