We want to help you become a better screenwriter.
That is all we care about. Seriously.
At Script Society, we believe that everyone has a story to tell, but does not always know how to tell it. Our coaching sessions, workshops and online programs are all designed to help you improve your screenplay and your screenwriting ability. Since our beginnings back in August 2015, we have helped hundreds of screenwriters across the globe accomplish that goal.
Script Society has sent me notes on more than one occasion, excellent notes, so I thought you might like to hear some good news about your hard work paying off. My half-hour comedy script, TEEN ZOMBIE SHOW, was a Top 10 finalist at the Cannes Film Festival in the TV category. The script also won the 2016 Gold Remi Award for TV writing. The TEEN ZOMBIE SHOW book is now available on Amazon. The video trailer has received over 100K views on YouTube, and the script has surpassed 50K followers on Twitter. So, it looks like I'll be shopping the script this year. I sure appreciate all your help. Deep down inside where it really counts, I feel pretty lucky to get your expert input and guidance.

Our focus: story, craft & marketability
Three things that will impact the success of your screenplay.
You may write a screenplay because you are interested in the topic... but ultimately, they are written for the entertainment of others (if you want to make any money at it). It's easy to get swept away in the process of writing a draft. That's why at Script Society, we coach our writers with these three elements in mind:
THE STORY: The heartbeat of your screenplay. What is unique about it? Where is the conflict? Who are the characters? In short - why should anyone care about it?
THE CRAFT: How is it written? If it's a comedy, are we laughing? If it's a horror, are we scared? Is it visual? Is the formatting correct? Does it read like pro?
MARKETABILITY: Who are you writing for? Is there a market for this right now? Is there an audience? Can you prove it?
I signed up for the Screenwriting Mentorship Premium Program. Following Kate’s syllabus and guidance, I completed my full length first draft in 8 weeks! I am extremely pleased with Kate’s detailed feedback, her concise notes and suggestions, and her industry knowledge. This course is well worth it. I look forward to working with Kate and Script Society on future screenplays. Thank you, Kate!

Meet our Founder: Kate Niemuller
Screenwriter, inspirational coach & aspiring dog-sledder
Yes, there is a face to this company, and it's me: Kate Niemuller. I founded Script Society back in 2015 with the goal of helping screenwriters across the globe. Before that, I held pretty much any job in film you can imagine: editor, DOP, director, producer, art director, set dresser...etc.
But, my passion had always been in writing. Script Society began as a simple analysis and script writing/rewriting service. In those early years, I wrote 70+ feature length screenplays for my clients and analyzed hundreds of others. Of those screenplays several have gone into private production, a few others have been requested by producers.
Most notably, one of my client's screenplay was a top ten finalist at the Cannes Film Festival (that same script also went on to win the 2016 Gold Remi Award for TV writing) and another made the quarter finals of the Academy Nicholl Fellowship. I was seeing the success of my hard work and it was exciting.
But, by late 2017... I was exhausted.
I'd just spent the last 2.5 years writing. Non-stop. It was a pace I knew I would not be able to maintain for much longer. I wasn't helping screenwriters by doing the hard work for them. But I wasn't ready to give up Script Society, or to leave my clients behind. It was time for a change.
That change came in January 2018. I introduced the first session of Script Society's Online Screenwriting Mentorship Program. It sold out. And every session that followed sold out. I knew I was onto something. Since then, Script Society has slowly transformed itself from a simple script analysis company to a global teaching platform.
Who knows where we will be in the next five years? I hope you'll stick around to find out.
Script Society’s Mentorship Program with Kate Niemuller far exceeded my expectations. Her insights guided me to consider deep structure, more complex characters, a resonant theme, and sound plot foundation. With patience, perception, and encouragement, she shared her knowledge and experience that helped develop my first draft’s dramatic promise and emotional core. I resoundingly applaud her unique skills and par excellence quality of this program.
