"Having taken many classes, none have prepared me so thoroughly for a first draft. The Script Anatomy tools helped me delve deep into the theme and tracking of my spec script, allowing me to get to a solid outline in a very short amount of time. The notes from my instructor were thorough and balanced, challenging me to be my best while remaining respectful of my ideas. For the first time in my writing career, the transition from outline to first draft was seamless. I can't say enough great things. This is a class I will take again and again!"

"It’s not enough to be good in this industry. I’ve found that it’s not even enough to be great. You need to be prolific, consistent and possess an ability to generate work quickly. Script Anatomy will give you the tools to achieve this level of performance. I trust Script Anatomy’s development tools implicitly because I’ve reaped its benefits. I developed my first spec outline in Televisionary Writer’s Workshop. That spec led me to the Finals of every 2014 Television Fellowship Program. It’s not for the faint of heart, but if you have the drive, commitment and passion, Script Anatomy will give you the weapons to succeed."
