What People are Saying About This

Jerry Vasilatos
Sara and Marie-Eve's book takes screenwriters on an inflective journey that helps them sharpen their skills and hone their craft while evaluating and overcoming the many perceived obstacles that all writers face. As a producer who has worked with both women, I can attest that their experience and guidance will prepare all screenwriters with the foundations they need to achieve success. (Jerry Vasilatos, writer, producer, director, Nitestar Productions)
Michele Rifkin
I wish I had this book when I first plunged into the screenwriting jungle. It's like having your own private shrink encouraging you to never give up--and it costs a lot less. (Michele Rifkin, writer, Bone Chillers, ABC TV)
Lee Roloff
Sara Caldwell and Marie-Eve Kielson's So You Want to Be a Screenwriter is nothing less than a profound text on the creative process itself. Though directed to the art of screenwriting, the book challenges all the fragilities, second thoughts, and doubts that any creative person encounters in his or her art. The authors have written a brilliant excursion into the psychology of creativity. Written with uncommon clarity, So You Want to Be a Screenwriter ought to be in the library of any person aspiring to any art. It is that good. (Lee Roloff, Professor Emeritus, Department of Performance Studies, Northwestern University)
