Feedback For Linda’s Books and Courses


'A lucid and eminently useful atlas of screenwriting technique. All the vague confusing things that teachers and studio executives say about flashback, turning points and multiple protagonists are whipped into coherent shape, in a comprehensive, precise and extremely practical theory... an essential tool in any writer's kit.'
Christopher Vogler (The Writer's Journey)


'...an incredibly comprehensive analysis of what the screenwriter does, of what can go right and what can go wrong and how to fix it when it does. I highly recommend it.'

Andrew Bovell, Screenwriter – 'Lantana', ‘Edge of Darkness’


'Linda Aronson is one of the great and important voices on screenwriting.'

“Linda Aronson...absolutely sensational. So many ideas crammed in an hour and a half and she is a brilliant communicator and I could understand even the most complicated structures she was talking about. It was quite eye-opening and very inspiring. Even the stuff she flung in there as asides rang true and made me think”.
