To strengthen your script's representation of women!
Emily offers screenwriting consultation to help writers strengthen their female characters and their script's representation of marginalized groups. She works on all types of film projects to help them appeal to a wider audience that responds to positive and realistic depictions of women on-screen.
From Emily: "One of the questions I get asked most often is how a writer can be more inclusive in their script or flesh out their female characters. I know so many amazing male writers who have the best intentions and want to represent women well in their scripts, but aren't quite sure how to make that leap.
If you've ever:
worried about how to expand your female characters beyond a stereotype
been concerned about how real women will react to the women in your script
wished there was a "spell check" for any unintentional biases in your work
I want to help you! If you want to create amazing, badass, complex, realistic female characters, you're one of the good ones already. My mission is to help you learn how to incorporate your progressive intentions into your script and appeal to a wider audience of women and marginalized groups."
