What is The Story Farm?
Like a personal trainer for your writing (only much less expensive)
More than just a general consultancy, The Story Farm works much like a development executive or manager would with a writer as the writer is developing multiple projects.
With weekly, one-on-one phone calls or the purchase of multiple evaluations that deliver specific notes on the ongoing development of multiple projects, The Story Farm is the most hands-on, comprehensive development service you will find in the industry. Approved by and in association with the International Screenwriters' Association, The Story Farm is designed to help dedicated, career-oriented writers for the long-term.
Please note that this is not a free service. It is "free" to sign up for more information, but because of the number of options available to you, it is necessary to discuss such options with a consultant one on one in order to work out the option for you. If you scroll down, you will see available packages and pricing.

*Max Timm and The Story Farm does not and can not guarantee that we will get your script into the hands of producers, managers, agents, or studio executives, nor does The Story Farm claim official connection to any studio. The Story Farm will, however, promise to help you develop the very best script possible and, if/when ready, will reach out to industry professionals on your behalf.
The Director of Education with the International Screenwriters’ Association, President of The Story Farm, and VP of Development for Creative Screenwriter Productions, Max has 15 years of experience in developing material and writers’ careers. His focus with the ISA is to build a creative community and bring ISA writers closer to Industry Professionals. Having attended Holy Cross College at Notre Dame and then transferring to Columbia College Chicago to study screenwriting and producing, Max is a Midwesterner and Chicagoan at heart who prides himself on supporting creative people in as many ways possible. Recently he helped build a development slate with the ISA, submitting writers’ projects on their behalf and helping them launch their careers – 19 writers have received options and representation to date because of Max’s assistance and support. His Story Farm consulting service develops working writers and their material much like a studio executive or manager would, and his online classes, titled The Craft Course in Screenwriting, offer writers outside the Los Angeles area to take part in professional full development.
A development consultant, manager, and screenwriting instructor, Max is a screenwriter and author himself. His debut novel, a young adult fantasy adventure titled The WishKeeper, about a teenage fairy with broken wings, won the young adult category of the 2015 Los Angeles Book Festival and released worldwide in the Summer of 2016. Max has also served as a part-time instructor at UCLA, and travels nationally and internationally speaking at a multitude of industry events such as the Sundance Film Festival, Nashville Writers Conference, and even educating art program teachers through the LA Unified School District.
