LPW launch new Script Consulting Service

We know how important feedback is for new and emerging writers and we also know that there’s no ‘one size fits all’ when it comes to receiving it. Plays are all different, writers are all unique and have various requirements – from wanting structural advice on an early draft to getting their play submission ready!

So, we’ve decided to give our Script Consulting Service a good old overhaul to make sure we can help as wide a range of writers as possible with developing their work. 

It wasn’t that our old service wasn’t working. In fact, we’ve helped plenty of writers redraft their work this way and watched on proudly as they have gone on to have success with their plays (from rehearsed readings to full productions!). We still think that offering a 90 minute Skype chat along with written notes is a great way to deliver feedback and fuel the vibrant discussion that is invaluable in helping a writer to develop their work. So, this option is still on the table for those who want to use it!

We’ve also added in a few new options to meet the needs of  a wider range of writers. You’ll now be able to opt for a written report only which is perfect for those who would rather work through their notes alone and because it takes us less time, it’s cheaper.

We’re also offering feedback on the first 10 pages of script and the premise; this will help writers to find out if they’re on the right track with their idea and if they’re going to grab the attention of a reader in their opening scenes!

And, if none of these options suit your needs, we’re now offering Creative Development, where you can pay by the hour for individual feedback/ mentorship.

Whichever option you choose, you’ll get matched with one of our experienced script consultants who will work with you to get the very best out of your script!

We’ve also worked hard to keep the cost of our services down whilst ensuring we are able to pay a fair wage to those involved . And, LPW Members pay 20% less on all of these services. So, find out more about joining here

  1. I am a bit discouraged about this type of service. I had a radio play evaluated by a member of Radio 4. It was in 2001 or 2002 and I paid him £100. He was very encouraging and told me what I should do to improve the play. I asked him if I could send him the play after rewriting it and he said no. He said I had no chance to be performed for all sort of reasons. Those people are like a teacher, they correct you, the rest is not their business. I would have prefered him to say that I didn’t have enough talent to be chosen; that would have been honest even if cruel. If he really thought that my play had a chance, he would have told me and helped me to go through.
