What is The Story Farm?
Like a personal trainer for your writing
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.
If you wish to work long-term with Max Timm and The Story Farm, we offer weekly, one-on-one phone calls. You must contact Max@TheStoryFarm.org in order to arrange the service and payment.
You can purchase multiple evaluations that deliver specific notes on the ongoing development of multiple projects. This would be done via the call packages. If you would like an extensive, professional and educational approach that sets weekly deadlines and gets your screenwriting career thrust into high gear, select the 6-month or 12-month weekly coaching options.
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 with their craft and ongoing script development (TV or Features).

The Director of Education with 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 ISA, submitting writers’ projects on their behalf and helping them launch their careers – 21 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.
