What if?

By Corey Mandell

What if most of what’s being taught about screenwriting is wrong?

What if most of the rules, paradigms and secrets widely touted in books, seminars and classes not only don’t improve your writing, but could actually sabotage it?

And what if there were specific skill sets nobody talks about that could dramatically boost your chance at success?
