Still going it alone as a writer, without much to show for it?

Despite investing time, money and patience on screenwriting books, blog posts, seminars, etc. AND writing every day, are you:

• Struggling to master the craft and getting the same negative feedback on your script’s structure, dialogue, characters, theme and so on? Then getting frustrated and feeling like giving up because no-one’s interested in your work?

• Feeling lost and confused, like you’ve got the will but not the way? And the more information you consume the more confused you become because everyone’s giving different advice?

• Losing motivation to write as you juggle work, family and friends. And when you do have a spare moment all you want to do is catch up on your favorite show on Netflix—then a downward spiral of inactivity ensues?

Sound familiar?

Maybe you’re even thinking. “Am I ever going to get where I want to be as a writer?” This is a completely understandable way to feel. But there’s no need to. Because we’ve been in your shoes, we know what it takes to go from aspiring screenwriter to professional screenwriter. And we can show you how you can do it too.

This is the only mentorship of its kind—built by pro screenwriters for aspiring screenwriters. Learn week-by-week, step-by-step, how to 10x your script’s chances of kick-starting your career.

We will help you focus on the screenwriting strategies that actually work, step-by-step. We will show you how to take your script from frustrating to a final, sellable draft.

The Screenwriting Mentorship comes as either a 6- or 12-week program, and by the end, our goal is that you walk away feeling 100x more confident in your work and writing ability.

Many top writers only turned pro
thanks to a mentor.

Greatness rarely appears out of a vacuum. Often the most successful people in any given field didn’t reach the top of their game by battling away on their own.

They got there with the help of a MENTOR.

Many of the best performers in creative fields—from screenwriters to musicians, and from scientists to ice skaters—had a mentor to be inspired by, to learn from and to help cultivate their future greatness.

 Steven Spielberg was mentored by George Lucas.

 Bob Dylan was mentored by Woody Guthrie.

 Thomas Sowell was mentored by Milton Friedman.

Elizabeth Taylor was mentored by Audrey Hepburn.

Edward Burns was mentored by Steven Spielberg.

And the list goes on.

There’s a reason the top performers in any given field—from business to entertainment to sports—hire coaches and trainers.

They could’ve said “I want to go it alone” and simply enrolled on evening classes and read some books. But they didn’t…

They invested in themselves.

Rather than relying on their innate talent (or, worse yet, “fate”) they took control of their destiny by finding someone who could help set them on the path to greatness.

And now you can do the same…

Match your script’s genre with the
pro screenwriter of your choice.

Meet the team and discover who will be helping you get your script over the finish line.

But your script is your baby. You worked long hours to complete it. Our  team can help you take it across the finish line, faster.

How? Because great scripts don’t get written in a vacuum… That’s why we provide access to an easy-to-hire and easier-to-afford team of industry pros. For less than $100 you can take your script from frustrating to final draft in a fraction of the time it’d take to do it by yourself.

How the Screenwriting Mentorship process works. 

Ready to get mentored by a working Hollywood writer?
Here’s how it works:

1. Purchase a Mentorship Assessment. During checkout, once you click “Add to Cart,” you’ll be able to choose your turnaround time, make a $69 payment (or Rush payment), choose your pro writer and upload your script.

2. Assess your Mentorship Assessment. Your pro will then write up a Mentorship Assessment for you, letting you know if your script qualifies and, if so, a suggested plan of attack to take it to the next level during the mentorship.

Then, you can either…

4. Go it alone. You’re free to use your pro’s suggestions to keep plugging away by yourself.


5. Hire us! If you prefer, take your pro up on their offer and sign up for a 12- or 6-Week Screenwriting Mentorship.

Please note: We don’t accept all writers onto the Screenwriting Mentorship program…

We only accept writers who are serious about improving their craft and who we feel we’re able to help. For example, if you have a 180-page screenplay and aren’t willing to accept changes that will bring it down to 110, this isn’t the program for you.

The first step to getting started is to purchase an Mentorship Assessment at $69 so we can write up 1+ pages of notes on your script’s suitability for the mentorship. Your chosen pro will let you know how they’ll approach the 6- or 12-week sessions.

This program is only for serious writers who are ready for BIG changes in their screenwriting career. If that’s you, just click the link below.

If your script makes the grade we’ll send you a link to purchase the Screenwriting Mentorship for the sign-up fee of:

$799 for 6x 1-hour sessions or…
$1399 for 12x 1-hour sessions

Think of it like a tennis coach – they’re there to tell you what you’re doing wrong. They have fresh, professional eyes. We as writers need that.

I’m elated to report [the Screenwriting Mentorship] exceeded anything I could have imagined. I cannot overstate the value of having someone who’s been where I want to go. I’ve learned more in 6 weeks than I have in years.

Damone Bester

To say Scott has been incredible in his guidance, encouragement and wisdom would be an understatement. I am confident I am easily five years ahead of the curve of where I would have been had I not signed up for this incredible service.

While we could just take anyone and everyone on board, the Screenwriting Mentorship is NOT for writers who:

• Have an unworkable script. We only accept writers on to the program whose work we think we can help. In order to be accepted, the first stage is to purchase and complete an Initial Assessment. This involves your chosen pro writing up a report on whether your work is ready for the mentorship.

• Believe you can succeed by passively absorbing information. Some aspiring writers sign up, listen to the advice but then don’t put it into practice. Then they complain that their screenwriting career hasn’t taken off… If this sounds like you, the mentorship probably isn’t a good fit.

Expect a guarantee they’ll be able to gain representation or sell their script after completing it. No service will be able to guarantee this outcome and we advise you to take any that do with a large grain of salt.

• Expect their mentor to automatically pass their work on to industry contacts. The mentorship isn’t a one-way ticket to getting a script read by our readers’ contacts. It does happen, but we make absolutely no guarantees on this front.

Want 24/7 contact with their mentor. If you’re looking for a situation where you can email your mentor or jump on a call with them whenever inspiration strikes, this isn’t the mentorship for you. We ask that all story questions and ideas be confined to the sessions.

On the other hand, we’re super excited to work with you if:

• You’re tired of “going it alone” and not seeing any results. You’re struggling to write or finish a script. Or iron out an idea. Or are confused by all the conflicting writing advice out there and want some solid feedback from an industry professional.

• You’re eager and willing to learn. You’ve put in a hell of a lot of work into your work and aren’t about to give up now. You’re ready to invest in yourself and work hard to become the best screenwriter you can be.

Maybe you’ve even had some success, but your career’s stalled and now you’re not sure how to revive that buzz.

Or maybe you have the skills but are simply having trouble staying motivated and need someone there to keep pushing you forward.

If any of the above rings true, this the mentorship can help you—whatever your screenwriting aspirations may be so you can begin building a career doing what you love.

“We all need fuel. Without the assistance, advice, and inspiration of others, the gears of our mind grind to a halt, and we’re stuck with nowhere to go. I have been blessed to find mentors and idols at every step of my life, and I’ve been lucky to meet many of them. From Mikhail Gorbachev to Muhammad Ali, from Andy Warhol to George H.W. Bush, I have never been shy about seeking wisdom from others to pour fuel on my fire.”
— Arnold Schwarzenegger

Screenwriting Mentorship FAQs. 

You can find the answers to most questions on our contact page but here are some answers to popular questions about our Screenwriting Mentorship service below.

Q1. How do I know this won’t be a waste of my money?

Script Reader Pro was born out of its CEO, Al Bloom’s, frustrations at receiving vague, unhelpful script coverage from anonymous readers on his own scripts. That’s why we do the exact opposite! Every mentorship program we complete with our customers come with a rock solid promise: you won’t be disappointed. See our testimonials page for feedback on our services from writers just like you.

Q2. Why should I choose Script Reader Pro over anyone else?

You should absolutely check out our competitors’ mentorship services before purchasing. The problem is that we’re about the only consultancy out there who offer them. Apart from this, you’ll find that none of the other companies use professional screenwriters for any of their services. You won’t know their names, just their initials. You won’t know what their experience is, other than something vague about “working at top agencies.” You won’t be able to choose a reader unless you pay extra, and on and on.

Q3. But Company X offers a sure-fire route to the big-time within a month for $300! Sounds better than this mentorship thing, right?

Hmm… Yes, it’s true other consultancies do offer “routes into the industry”-type services at lightning speeds but, to be honest, they often sound a little far-fetched. Besides, we’re the only company who will actually mentor you. None of the other company’s claims about helping you break into the industry will work if you don’t have a great script in the first place. And that’s what we can help you with.

Q4. But why do I even need help from someone else? I know it better than anyone. 

You don’t need a pro to mentor you, but imagine how much better your script and writing could be if you let them? The thing is, even professional screenwriters get feedback on their scripts and be mentored by others. When you’re “in the weeds” of your own script and writing, it can be super hard to know what’s working and what’s not. An outsider rewriting things that aren’t gelling can make the difference between breaking in and not breaking in, getting a manager or not getting a manager, winning a contest or not winning a contest, etc. Especially if that person is a pro screenwriter themselves.

Q5. Can you guarantee that I’ll break in after using your mentorship service?

We don’t make any promises or guarantees of success, such as securing an agent, manager or making a sale or winning a contest. But we do  guarantee that you’ll have a much better script on your hands than when you gave it to us. It’s up to you to market it and start making things in your writing career happen. The thing is, there are no guarantees in this business as it’s super subjective. So if you find a script consultancy or rewrite service that does guarantee these things, we recommend you proceed with extreme caution. (In other words, don’t do it!)

Q6. I’m not paying you to just feed my script into an A.I. software am I?

This is a smart question in this day and age. Look, A.I. can do a lot of things, but it can’t write a great script or mentor you (not yet anyway). But we can. And our successes reflect that.

You may realize you have two choices:

1. Keep going at it alone, trying to learn by yourself, entering contests and not placing, querying agents and managers and not hearing anything back, and so on.


2. Get serious with your writing aspirations and get professional one-on-one help.

Remember: Eight out of ten aspiring screenwriters don’t put in the work required to write a truly exceptional script. Other things keep getting in the way, like hanging out with friends or watching TV. Don’t be one of them.

Stop making the same mistakes as 90 percent of other aspiring screenwriters. Get some guidance from a working professional on how to write the script that will help you break into the industry.
