There are several levels of consultancy available, depending on your needs and situation.

Please email for more details and to see if there's a fit.
I consult with no more than 3 clients at a time in order to provide in-depth attention to each.

Testimonials from previous students/clients:
"I found Craig on the internet about a year ago, I had written a novel that I wanted to adapt to a screenplay, but had no idea how to go about it. Thanks to Craig's knowledge and empathy, I am within a month of completing this project. He is an outstanding teacher and coach." - David M, San Mateo
"Working with Craig was a huge boon to my writing process. He was thorough and thoughtful, echoing some of my own thoughts about my script but also bringing up issues and giving advice on aspects I hadn't even thought of. When he works with you, it is obvious that he has really thought about your piece, analyzing characters and working out the plot in a professional and meaningful way. I would highly recommend him to anyone who is looking for guidance, either on an intensive level or just as a second pair of eyes. - Casey B, filmmaker/writer, Sonoma
