"Amy has an extraordinary ability to show writers different possibilities of improving their scripts while staying within the parameters the writer has defined."
Whether you are an experienced screenwriter or playwright looking for feedback on your latest draft, or a prose author looking to delve into the world of dramatic writing for the first time, Amy can help you take your script-writing to the next level. Amy provides instruction for individuals and groups at all stages of the writing process, as well as individual consultation on drafts of plays and screenplays. Her consultations includes a written summary of her suggestions for improving the script and an hour meeting to discuss in person or over the telephone. She approaches the script as a whole, and does not provide line editing. For the professional writer, she offers notes for revision and final polishing, and advice on incorporating producers' notes.
Amy is a playwright and screenwriter whose work includes the Merchant Ivory film Heights and plays that have been produced at theaters in NYC, London, Tel Aviv, San Francisco, Austin, and elsewhere. She is on the faculty of the NYU/Tisch Graduate School of Film and Television, and has also taught at Brooklyn College, Gotham Writers' Workshop, The Ensemble Studio Theatre, and New York Stage and Film's Powerhouse Program. Her play One Thing I Like to Say Is was a finalist for the 2006 Susan Smith Blackburn Prize, and Summer Cyclone and Heights are published by Dramatists Play Service.
