Rates are based on page counts in standard play format.*
$5 per page for critique and feedback/coaching
e.g., a 10-page short play - $50
e.g., a 49-page one-act play - $245
e.g., a 105-page full-length play - $525
*Play scripts should be provided in standard manuscript format, using a 12-point Times New Roman, 12-point Courier, or similar style and size font (click on "Formatting" tab on left for a sample). I reserve the right to evaluate page totals, and report to you the page count that results.
If you should wish for me to coach you on the same script another time (e.g., on a revised draft), significant discounts will apply. Contact me for rates.
If your play is not in standard professional play manuscript format (click on "Formatting" tab on left), and you wish for me to provide formatting services, the rate is $2 per formatted page. (I can provide you with a rough estimate of final page count before you choose this service.)

Payment is made before work begins using one of two methods:
PayPal (preferred, quickest method). I will email you a PayPal invoice with instructions. (Or go to paypal.com, click on "Buy" and then on "Make a Payment," and enter my email address: firstname.lastname@example.org.
A United States Post Service (Post Office) Money Order is acceptable (slower but just as good). Unfortunately, I cannot commence work until payment clears.
