Be the Writer
Writers Write About
Your writing needs to be vivid, sly, startling and revealing. Like I like my coffee. But talent alone won’t get you where you want to be.
You need a system. One that motivates you, keeps you focused and pushes your writing to the next level.
Join the next Writers Bootcamp, a 6-week writing intensive for screenwriters, authors and creators. Each week is packed with workshops, planning sessions and timed sprints.
I have longevity in a business that likes to disappear people over 40. My system has worked for me for decades. It can work for you.JOIN THE WAITLIST
Why Aren't You Writing?
- You always feel like you should be doing more
- You want to make more money with your god-given talent
- You want to finish the script, land the job or win over the client
- Your habits and rituals suck
- Your gorgeous brain wanders all the time
- You've taken endless courses and masterclasses but aren’t leaping forward
In my 30 years of experience, I've learned to not go it alone. Stop lone-wolfing it. You’re not a wolf. Unless you are and then this isn’t for you, but bravo on your tech skills.GET ON THE LIST

"Dawn is the reason I became a television writer. She’s a fantastic mentor, collaborator, and peer. Her wicked humor and fearless approach to storytelling is inspiring. She makes any writer’s room a thousand times better!"
Emmy Award-winning Writer, Director
Somebody Somewhere, The Simpsons, Lady Dynamite, The Big Bang Theory
“I've worked with Dawn in the comedy trenches. She'd share her last chocolate bar while giving excellent notes on letters to your sweetheart back home. She's seen it all and done it all. Listen to her!"
TV Writer, Showrunner, Podcaster
King of the Hill, Maron, Tacoma FD, Just Shoot Me
"Dawn is one of Hollywood’s most sought-after television writers. Her knowledge and experience make her an invaluable addition to any writers' room. And all of us are fortunate to work with her."
Screenwriter, Exec. Creative Director
The One Club, The Belding Awards, Communication Arts, NY Festival Advertising Awards
“Dawn is not only creative, she’s also strategic and collaborative. Her leadership has led to breakthrough, award-winning work that substantially increased sales and built brands. She’s a natural mentor to creatives. Plus, she’s really fun to work with.”
Novelist, Exec. Creative Director
The Book of Polly, Blue Asylum, The House of Gentle Men, The Absence of Nectar
“Dawn is the white smoke that escapes a chimney when a great new idea is elected at an agency or corporation. She can write like a Tasmanian Devil, and yet she has the piercing strategic mind of a falcon and the sense of fairness of a…fair animal."
"When you work with Dawn on a script, you instantly know why she's a professional. Her insightful notes are robust and deep, helping you to add layers to your writing while preserving your voice.
You'll walk away with feedback and brainstorming on plotholes, character arcs, and ways to enrich the world of your script that was hidden from you before and seems so obvious after.
In a world of mediocre script services, going to a pro who has been there and mastered that is well worth your time and money."
