Need Direction? You're In The Right Place

The Right Fit


We're looking for any writers who are dedicated to their long term careers, whether you've never written a screenplay before, or you're an industry veteran looking for ongoing support. We can and do work with writers who have only one screenplay they intend to finish and polish, but it is suggested that you prepare for longevity if you intend to find success in this business. We can help! We also work with novelists who want to adapt their book into script form, even if you've never written a screenplay before.

How It Works


Designed by 15-year industry veteran screenplay writing consultant, author, and the ISA's Director of Education and VP of Creative Screenwriter Prods, Max Timm. The Story Farm provides weekly calls, assignments, deadlines, notes and script evaluations that help you brainstorm, outline, and build your stories throughout the initial conception of the story idea, or during your rewrite process if you've already written the script (or book or any other source material). We offer the foundations of screenwriting education, plus extensive creative support to make the writing process easier and more manageable.

What You Get


Thorough notes every week no matter where you are in the development process (for the long-term package writers). Max will give you weekly assignments and hold you to weekly deadlines. Once you are finished with the script, you get a whole new set of notes on the finished product. You then start a new project, and the cycle of support and development continues. You also receive free online coursework and lectures that help keep you on track and provide educational content to allow that creativity to flow.

Additional Options


Check out the tabs at Tips & Education tab at the top of this page for free resources like blog posts (audio and video coming soon). Also, because of Max's affiliation and work with the Int'l Screenwriters' Assoc (ISA), you will have access to a network of available podcasts, writing gigs, educational content, industry professionals looking to read your material, inside-info on screenplay contests, and so much more.

The Story Farm Goal


To get your material to a place that is ready for industry submission, and launch your career (regardless of your experience). You can work on as many projects as you wish during the duration of the service, but it is The Story Farm's intent to get a writer to finish four projects in one year or 12 months, including rewrites. We believe if you have at least ten hours per week to dedicate to your writing, we can help you develop multiple projects quickly and effectively.

Success Stories

We can't wait to help you create your own personal success.
