See our Alumni Achievements and Testimonials for more.

Script Feedback Services

We will read your script, and offer a choice of a detailed written report diagnosing problems and suggesting improvements, or a one-hour telephone/videochat consultation, or both.

We design our feedback not only to give you a thorough understanding of what works, what doesn’t, and what could work better, but also to provide you with a roadmap for moving forward. If you choose the written feedback, you’ll get at least four pages covering presentation and formatting, story structure, plot, character, dialogue, tone, style, and commercial potential. We generate a logline and short synopsis so that you can see how your story comes across. Finally, we make clear recommendations so that you can use the feedback to your best advantage. Our commitment to you is that working with us will help you take your writing to the next level, whatever that is for your career.

Feedback pricing is as follows:

A conversation is a verbal feedback session via telephone/videochat of up to one hour. Follow-up or standalone telephone/videochat consultations are $110 per hour (half hour minimum); reading and prep time are chargeable. Ongoing consultation packages are also available, as are other screenwriting services.

A 10% discount on the above rates applies for alumni of our Italy screenwriting retreat, “Concept to Pages” workshop, or “Writing Is Rewriting” workshop (see Programs for more information).

Although we pride ourselves in delivering promptly, a fast turnaround fee (generally the greater of 25% or $50) may apply for urgent services. See other important notes at the very bottom of this page.

Other Services, including script development and consultations

We offer custom script development, consultation, coaching, and teaching services. For example, we can work with you one to one to develop fully an idea for film or television, or coach you through your individual writing challenges. We also lead private workshops and coaching sessions around the world. Our base rate for services online is $105/hour. Prices vary for in-person and/or ongoing services.

“WOW! I want to thank you for all your excellent coverage and notes on the script; they were timely and helpful in shaping one our next projects. As a member of the core team of an award-winning “short to feature” film, we know first-hand how critical it is to nail down a script that rises above the average noise. Your recommendations have made it easy for us to communicate with our screenwriter and get the results we want. We’re really grateful for you taking the time! Bravo!”

Important Notes:
  • Although we pride ourselves on delivering our script feedback services promptly, often within a week of payment, we cannot guarantee delivery times. At certain times, for example during the December holidays or while we are running our screenwriting retreats, delivery times will be slower. A fast turnaround service is available (see above).
  • PageCraft reserves the right to refuse service for any reason. For example, we are unable to provide feedback on scripts containing material that in our sole judgement is questionable (e.g., hate speech, pornography).
