Sydney’s Work

"Where others might only find a mess of words and jumbled ideas, Syd saw something more. She encouraged me and became my primary reader, editor, critic and guide." Peter Hedges, Writer/Director

What I Can Do For You


  • Do you have an idea for a book but have no idea how you might structure or execute it?
  • Do you have a draft of a manuscript you need feedback on?



  • Have you always wanted to understand how to structure a feature length narrative?
  • Do you have a first draft (at least 90 pages of a screenplay) that you need feedback on before you revise it?
  • Do you have a script you need one more set of eyes on before you get it to an agent or producer or produce it yourself?



  • Do you want to learn the fundamentals of structuring a pilot for network or cable?
  • Do you need feedback on a spec script of an existing show?



  • Once we have discussed your goals and your material– we will agree on an appropriate cost.
