Script Consultant Endorsements and Testimonials

Linda Seger is one of the world’s foremost script consultants. She created the script consulting career in the 1980’s and is the author of nine books on screenwriting, including the industry staple, Making a Good Script Great. Here are just a few of the testimonials and endorsements Linda has received from her clients.


“Thank you so much for your constructive critique of my scripts. If I were a neuron in your mind I would be lost on an adventure through the many pathways and connections firing the other cerebral lobes in your brain! You definitely have a sense of story and structure and imagination. Like constructing a beautiful gown, you sort through the raw material I give you and arrange the pieces to be sewn together to make something better than what was started. My story is like the basting and your critique is the finer stitching of the gown (the story). The facings (or subplots), the interfacings (underlining motives), each piece of fabric (the scenes), even after the top, middle and bottom sections are finished (Acts I, II and III) you show me how to assemble it all to make the story even better!” –J.A. Brown

“Linda Seger is a wealth of knowledge. It’s no wonder many of the pros look to her for help.” — Joni Ravenna

“The session with you yesterday was extraordinarily helpful and set me in the right direction. Thank you! You are so very good at what you do and glad you continue to share your knowledge with all of us “struggling” writers!” — M. N., Screenwriter

I just finished my first full read through this afternoon. I must say, your thoughts and insight are hitting home more deeply than I have words to express. I feel thrilled, humbled, encouraged, and challenged to make the best story possible!” — Amrish Sengupta

“I am thrilled by the analysis and the opportunities indicated to improve the script. Thanks for sharing your skill and knowledge with us on this project. We highly value your comments and insights. Marvelous. Thank you. It feels to me like we are at a banquet and see food we haven’t eaten before and now trying to figure out the best way to create the best dining experience through all of your guidance. My colleague John says it feels like we are on the bridge of a ship in dangerous waters and you have shown us a dozen or more lighthouses that will help navigation.” —Professor Francesco Sofo, PhD, FAHRI, University of Canberra, ACT, 2601
