The session with Pam went great. She has a warm and engaging style of communication, and I knew I was in the hands of someone that knows her stuff. Not only did she teach me a lot about screenwriting and how to pitch a story, but she also inspired me so much that I couldn’t wait to get back to my keyboard.” – Steve Elam
