Not see the service you need in the list, below? I am always happy to help – contact me

1) Concept Check Feedback

Don’t waste your time on concepts that will go nowhere! Make sure yours is BOMBPROOF before you devote hundreds of hours to a screenplay that does not work, is not marketable, or falls back on clichéd characters or scenarios. Send me your logline (25-60 words), plus up to two paragraphs for your vision for it.

Price: £20

2) 1 Pager / Short Treatment Feedback

One pager or “sizzler” (aka “extended pitch” or short treatment!) – it’s hard to know how yours stands up in the spec pile as they’re hard to get hold of online. I read hundreds of these documents a year however and can give you the feedback you need to avoid the various pitfalls with your own.

Prices: £20 (1-5 pages maximum); £30 (10 pages maximum).

Got a much longer treatment than 10 pages? FREE TIP: cut it riiiight down! SEE ALSO: 7 Things Agents, Producers & Filmmakers Can Tell From Your Pitch

3) Short Film 1 Page Special (5-20 pages max)

Short films NEED to stand out, so a strong screenplay with an identifiable central concept and purpose is a must. B2W offers a 1 page feedback report under this tariff. For an example, CLICK HERE.

Price: £20

4) Feature Screenplay Special (120 pages max)

I’ve read literally THOUSANDS of features for a variety of companies, initiatives and agencies, so get my verdict on yours as a “dry run” before those all-important submissions. For an example, CLICK HERE.

Price: £40

Want more detailed feedback on your screenplay?

5) Skype Notes (Script read & Skype call)

Want notes on your screenplay, formally or informally, in the style of a *real* script meeting? No problem – this is the service for you. What’s more, I will email you reminders of what we chatted about afterwards, so you needn’t worry about missing anything! Prices:

  • Short Films up to 30 pages (approx.): £30
  • Feature Screenplays 80-100 pages: £60; upto 140 pgs: £75

6) Written Feedback

Want some in-depth written notes? No problem. Send me your screenplay and its one page pitch and you will get your Development Notes as standard, PLUS in-depth feedback on what’s working/what’s not working about your pitch material.

    • Short Film script & One Pager (5-20 pages +1): £30
    • Feature scripts and One Pager (80-120 pages +1): £80

  1. Hi,

    Thanks for the wonderful resources!



  2. […] Bang2Write is offering free downloads.  Although primarily for screenwriters, there are a couple of downloads that would prove useful to […]

  3. Courtney Michael says:

    Lucy, thought you also offered consulting and feedback services for tv series bibles…let me know…thanks.

  4. Bob Eckhard says:

    Thanks Lucy!

  5. Len Burns says:

    Hi Lucy,

    Have followed your writing advice over a long period of time, going way back when …
    If someone as articulate and talented as you, has turned to giving advice instead of banging out scripts, which must now be more lucrative, what chance do us no-hopers have?

    Regards – Len Burns.

    • Lucy V Hay says:

      Hi Len, thanks for the kind words but on the contrary, I’m doing what I’ve always done when it comes to giving advice! Sure it’s my bread and butter money, but I also love what I do and wouldn’t change it. In addition, I haven’t given up on “banging out” scripts – I’ve just veered off the actual scriptwriting path and into script EDITING, helping FACILITATE the “banging out” of scripts instead. I was lucky enough to have a choice to make between two things I enjoy – script editing edged out and won! You can see some of the produced projects I’ve been involved in on the “Projects” page on this website. As for chances, the first thing you have to do is stop thinking of yourself as a “no hoper”; also, forget about the notion of “chance” — PICK YOURSELF. Think what you want and resolve to pay the price to get it. I did.

    Happy Birthday Lucy!

    Thank you for the Kindle downloads today. I look forward to meeting you at the Screenwriters Festival.

  7. It’s not on this page, but I have been having a real issue with the “How not to write female characters” ebook, I have tried subscribing three times, I suspect that I may have been an existing subscriber and that may have caused a problem.
    Is there any other way to obtain this resource, it sounds fantastic!


  8. Please send me a list of up and coming screenwriting contests. Thank you.

  9. David Wolfe says:

    Hi Lucy–I cannot get the link to the example of the feedback you provide under 4) Feature Screenplay Special to work. Is there another way to find an example? Thanks. David

  10. Enni says:

    Hello, Lucy,

    I am a new one here and want to try your Short Film 1 Page Special. Can you specify please any deadlines for me to plan? If, for example, I send it to you on the 1st of March and I have 10 pages short film – when can I expect to have your answer?
