Testimonials

“My knowledge and confidence in storytelling has improved tenfold since taking part in the Prep and Pages courses. I have thoroughly enjoyed the lectures and Tom’s insight, encouragement, and feedback. I highly recommend these courses to anybody — from beginners to those farther on the screenwriting path”. ~ Goran Spoljaric

“I’ve had the pleasure of working with Tom on several rewrites. Each time, I’ve come away with a much improved script and grown as a writer. His questions and suggestions challenge you to push the narrative and strengthen the spine of your story. How many courses provide personalized access to an experienced, working screenwriter! I recommend the Rewrite course to anyone serious about taking their writing to the next level.You’ll have a blast.” ~ Matt Lintner

“It was obvious to me from the first class that Tom’s screenwriting acumen stems not from theory but from practicing the craft as a working screenwriter. His knowledge of screenwriting and his hands-on experience translates into clear, easy to grasp teachings that benefit beginner as well as more advanced screenwriters. His depth of feedback has helped me tighten my script, develop a clearer theme and flesh out my characters better that any class I’ve taken before”. ~ Ourdia Hodge
