Site of the week: Script Consultant

Professional level writing is tricky so it’s no surprise there is a glut of sites claiming to help make scriptwriters into pros. For a price.

This is why Script Consultant is the site of the week. Philip Shelley is a freelance script consultant, and yes he charges for pitching and other advice – after all, he has to make a living – but he gives a lot away free of charge.

For example, his latest article is on how to come up with ideas, full of top tips such as reading professional scrtipts – sounds obvious but I’m surprised at the amount of (wannabe) writers who barely look at successful examples of the finished product before putting ink to paper.

His regular email newsletter also has a wealth of advice and you can sign up now from his home page – so what are you waiting for?
