Information on upcoming workshops and courses
Mary Kate and Rachel O Flanagan are script consultants (although we prefer the term story midwives), who work internationally, helping to shape stories by emerging and established screenwriters.
Between us we have over three decades of training and experience working in story for the screen. Our work with writers is in the tradition of the Socratic approach.
That's a fancy way of saying, we use our understanding of the craft of storytelling to clarify the writer's intentions and help to realise them, rather than trying to impose solutions.
“I would rank Mary Kate on the highest international
level in terms of her knowledge of filmmaking, her
contributions to the creative process, and her
expertise in dealing with screenwriters”
