Thank you. thank you for your honest & detailed appraisal of my work! It is extremely helpful & insightful.

The Distracted Yogi, Novel

I appreciate WILDsound’s committee feedback on the first chapter/prologue submission of my memoir Am doing a rewrite to address your recommendations and, per your suggestion, will send back my revised submission as soon as possible.
– Danielle Dahl
Sirocco, Novel

Thank you for your thoughtful feedback. Much appreciated.
– JD Daniels
Minute of Darkness, Novel

Thank you very much…interesting opinions and thoughts. They are much appreciated!
– Tory Gates
Dawn, Novel

Thanks for the feedback. I have reviewed some of the mishaps you noted already. But once again, thanks for your insight. I’d love to have an editor to go through it.
– Philip Oyok,
Old Man, 1st chapter novel

I am so impressed with your feedback that I will submit the finished novel into your competition not so much as to try and win the competition but rather to get the valuable feedback I need at a reasonable cost before taking the novel further.
– Francis Connor
The Devil’s Bridge, 1st chapter novel

Interesting feedback. I too have come to the same conclusion you have. I will resubmit, rewriting the opening chapter and taking out the narration of the dead man. I was seduced by the idea, but agree he becomes a distraction and a filter.
– Elisabeth Appell
Elements of Betrayal, 1st chapter book

Thank you for the festival and the feedback. This book hit its target. To provide a broad base from which others can continue the story.
– Roland Hughes
John Smith: Last Known Survivor

Thanks for your insightful and highly constructive comments on my novel submission, “Victoria The First”. Clearly, your reader(s) read the manuscript carefully and thoroughly. Your overall assessment of “a great read” has encouraged me to dive back in and tell this story the way I know I can.
– Bill Osinski
Victoria The First: A Novel, Full Novel

Thanks for your thoughtful critique. And how you pin-pointed all of the many grammatical errors in this novel draft. The notebook passages were meant in part to convey that vitally important moral and political distinction (Ariel is something of a marxist for a reason, after all). I am sorry it was not made more clear in the narrative. Again, thanks for reading my novel with such care.
– Christopher Bernard
Voyage to a Phantom City, Full Novel

Today’s FilmFreeway: Submit to the Action/Adventure Film & Screenplay Festival

I got my appraisal and it was possibly the best I have ever received, not because it was good or complimentary, but because they had obviously read it, and I mean completely and they properly criticized it! So their comments were not only ‘left of field’, but they were an accurate observation and they actually improved the script, not matter how hard they were to swallow. It was so worthwhile it was worth the price of entry just to get that feedback.

Read more testimonials from the festival:

I found the page specific notes to be incredibly helpful. They showed that the reader took time to read and analyze the entire script. And considering the amount of pieces that are submitted, that says a lot.
– Franklin Friedlander, Feature Screenplay “Killer Be Killed”

This is the most intensive and helpful script notes I have received from any contest or paid reader. I would have paid for these notes without having entered the contest. If I had this reader years before, I wouldn’t be so disheartened and soured as I am now on screenwriting. If I ever regain my enthusiasm for screenwriting and film, I will surely follow the constructive notes on a rewrite.
– Todd Bronson, Feature Screenplay “Poaching the Big Muddy”

Thank you very much for your well-considered feedback. I’ve read through your feedback a couple of times and thought I’d let you know it’s very actionable feedback and something I feel I can use to make me a better writer altogether.
– George Reese, Feature Screenplay “Reconquista”

It was nice to hear that the audio design was appreciated, particularly that knee stomp (Hi Stewart!). We spent a lot of time making it ‘wetter’, so it’s nice to hear it specifically mentioned. It was also nice to hear the production design was appreciated. The mention of that shot where everything is swept off the table got me particularly, as watching playback for that on set was the first moment I felt we really had something cool in the making.
– Harrison Norris, Short Film Director “A Peaceful Man”

I love their (Adventure/Action Festival) concept of multiple ways to get your story out: from logline, to 1st scene, to full screenplay. The fast turnaround for feedback is critical for me as I’m sure it is with many new writers — as many new drafts have been made by the time most contests provide feedback and results.
– David Kurtz, Feature Screenplay “Weecho”
