ABOUT YOUR WORKSHOP LEADER:

JESSICA TANNER, THE WRITE SCRIPT CONSULTING

Meet Jessica Tanner, the storyteller’s consultant, and founder of The Write Script Consulting Services. Ms. Tanner’s journey into storytelling began as a child and led her to Loyola University where she majored in creative writing.  From there, she furthered her development of the craft at the Academy of Art University where she obtained a degree in screenwriting. 

Upon graduating, Ms. Tanner became a freelance script analyst for screenwriting platforms Coverfly and Screenwriting Staffing, and was also a judge for The Wiki Screenplay Contest and The Los Angeles International Screenplay Awards.  While working with these organizations, she realized her desire to connect with writers on a deeper level and thus gave birth to The Write Script Consulting Services in 2020.  Through her agency, Ms. Tanner now works with writers to hone their craft while developing stronger characters and meaningful storylines.
