My private sessions will inspire &…


There’s an energy that pushes forward both you as the screenwriter, and the main character of your screenplay.  How this energy manifests itself into the elements composing a screenplay is what’s explored, honored and followed when working with Elana. In this way, authentic and convincing screenplays that elevate the heart, mind and soul are created.


The private sessions will inspire, guide and support you as you make your choices about story and structure, character, theme and subtext, visual detail and dialogue, and all other forks-on-the-road you might come to, when writing your screenplay.

What others say…


“The idea for my screenplay came out of a writing assignment I did in Elana’s creative writing class.  Then we began working on it one-on-one – Elana midwifing the birth of this baby with her generous spirit, knowledge and good taste.” D. Ann Nadeau, actress and screenwriter:

“In the ‘Writing for Peace’ workshop, Elana created this tender environment in which I felt safe to write and share my grandmother’s story for the first time: How she had been expelled from her home in Acca in the 1948 Naqba – the Palestinian catastrophe.” [/vc_column_text][/vc_column_inner][vc_column_inner width=”1/4″][vc_single_image image=”2666″ css_animation=”right-to-left” img_link_target=”_self” img_size=”full”][/vc_column_inner][/vc_row_inner][/vc_column][/vc_row]
