    Hi Sharon,

    I missed your workshop at UNF Saturday (July 18, 20150.

    I’m wondering whether you would look at a film/mini-series Treatment I’ve just drafted?

    Hi Bryant, So sorry about the workshop. I appreciate you asking about your treatment. I used to do consulting, but because I have impossible deadlines for three features I’m writing right now, I can’t commit to read for other writers. If you’re looking for a consultant, maybe you want to consider the one I use to critique every treatment and script I write. He’s very affordable and really knows his business. John Boles is his name: is his email address. Best of luck on your treatment. Write on, Sharon
