    I am a professional screenwriter, editor, and script doctor who has worked over the last few years for CBS, Paramount+, Amazon, and Paramount Pictures. I've written features for 20th Century Fox, Warner Bros., Happy Madison, and Bad Robot. A pilot of mine was produced by NBC, as well as a children's episodic for Cartoon Network and an animated pilot for Adult Swim. I've also done short-form comedy material for entities like The Onion, HBO, and National Lampoon. I've written faith-based material for PureFlix, Super Bowl commercials, and am the Head Writer for Monarch Wine - a digital magazine devoted to vino and music. Previous to my own professional career, I worked as an Oscar-nominated screenwriter's assistant for eight years, trusted with the editing, proofreading, and content development for a number of major studio projects. I work swiftly without sacrificing quality and am adept in a number of genres. I have a BFA from Emerson College and furthered my studies with the Act One program in Los Angeles. I'm a write-at-home dad and a night owl, with a prolific output that I'd love to put towards projects like yours.

    I'm a speechwriter and executive communications consultant based in New York City, with extensive experience developing keynote presentations, thought leadership, articles, high-quality video scripts, and other written communications. I help senior leaders tell their stories, fight for their causes, and leave a lasting impression with audiences. I'm a member of Upwork's Pro Writers group for top-ranked freelancers. I have served as a speechwriter to senior leaders at a wide range of organizations across the corporate and non-profit world, including VMware, the World Bank, the African Development Bank, and the American Association of State Colleges and Universities. I was previously a speechwriter and policy advisor in a variety of roles across the Obama-Biden Administrations, including turns at the Departments of State, Energy, and Veterans Affairs. I’ve also ghostwritten pieces for clients in the pages of Rolling Stone, Fast Company, Inc, and other leading publications you’ve read. As a member of Washington Writers Network and the Professional Speechwriters Association, I have often tackled projects focused on clean energy, technology, and business strategy, but I'm adept at writing and quickly getting up to speed on a wide range of topics. I graduated from Carnegie Mellon University’s H. John Heinz III College, where I earned a Master of Science in Public Policy and Management. I have also guest lectured on the nuts and bolts of speechwriting at American University in Washington. I bring an international perspective to my work, having served as a Peace Corps volunteer in West Africa and beginning my communications career as a speechwriter and policy advisor for an ambassador at the U.S. State Department. I'm a 4-time Boston Marathon qualifier (midlife crisis). Hand me any kind of text and I can help make it shine! ** Select Testimonials: “My presentation went very well. So well that subsequent presenters referenced my talk during their talks and I received several invitations to speak outside the US (Amsterdam, UK, Israel).” — CEO of Major Water Utility, Washington DC area “So kind of you to remember, Daron! I just hoped down from the stage and was waiting to report back. It went superbly! I made people cry…which always makes me feel like I’ve hit the mark because it means people felt something. Thank you for your exceptional work in crafting it. I will be back for more!” — Animal Rights Activist, Vietnam “Today’s media landscape is chaotic and cluttered. Daron is the key to helping senior leaders break through that noise, by delivering communications that build their credibility and relevance. A few key things to know about Daron: - Daron has a broad knowledge of policy, business, and global issues. He can seamlessly weave all this knowledge together to help leaders deliver impactful messages while avoiding potential pitfalls. And he can get up to speed very quickly on any topic that requires a deep dive. Seriously…any topic. - Daron has a very calm demeanor. I’ve seen him deal with intense and demanding stakeholders in stressful situations. He never lets the pressure get to him, integrates feedback well, and always delivers. - Daron can turn things around very quickly and never misses a deadline. He’s pleasant and so easy to work with. I’ve worked with Daron for many years, and I would unreservedly recommend him to anyone who needs speeches or articles that build their personal brand and thought leadership platforms.” — Global Social Media Manager, Philadelphia

    I am a multi-produced, multi-award-winning screenwriter of feature films, short films, and television. Dozens of my screenplays and pilots have been optioned, several have been theatrically released worldwide, and even more are currently in various stages of development and production. My most recently completed feature starring Sid Haig (The Devil's Rejects, Kill Bill) and Sara Tomko (Resident Alien) was released nationwide last year and is now available on-demand everywhere. If you'd like a novel adapted for the screen faithfully and beautifully, if you have an amazing idea for a movie or tv show but you're just not sure how to bring it to life, or if you've already got a script but you know it can be leveled up, I will be thrilled to work with you to help you realize your project with a quality you've never dreamed possible. I am listed as a "Top Freelancer" with five-star reviews across the board. Please take a moment to look over my feedback to see just how happy all of my clients have been with my work.

    Well, I started out writing youtube scripts on Upwork 3 years ago, and so far am now among the Top-Rated Freelancers on Upwork that are specializing in YouTube content creation. I not only write engaging and interesting scripts, but I will also Edit your video, and if you don't have a Voice over, according to the type of niche you are in, I will refer you to one. ** Scripting ** Writing scripts for 3 years just on Upwork is not a joke. I have been doing this professionally. So, I understand what works and what doesn't. There is no need to pay me for a script I know very well won't grab attention on YouTube. This is one of the reasons you need to choose me. I don't just play as a Freelancer; you get a partner. Someone who knows and understands his work. One who writes interesting, engaging, and plagiarism-free scripts. A script that builds up suspense and is creative. And by the way, I have all the premium tools a writer should have, a premium Grammarly account, as well as a premium Copyscape account. Be assured of quality! Moreover, you get someone who will advise you on the kind of topics you don't need to focus on, on YouTube. I will share some topics that will be of much help according to your niche. ** Video Editing ** When it comes to video editing, this is one of the important sections of a video. The script might be well-detailed and interesting, and the Voice might be stunning, but it's all a waste if the video is poor. Moreover, if the editing has some copyrighted material, the same case, zero work. With my Youtube experience on the copyright policy as well as the YouTube terms of use, be rest assured you will get not only a professional video but also a video that hooks and grabs the viewer's attention. A video that no one would skip to watch later. They might probably rewatch it. I mean WHY not? Something catchy and fun to watch.

    My name is Donna Mae. I have a BA in Screenwriting with 11 years of experience with the written word. My work ranges from creative to technical with a focus on precise storytelling for your audience. I have written... ...blogs for small-business owners. ...video and podcast content for Discovery Channel. ...technical e-mails for YouTube, Google, Facebook, and Twitter. ...coverage for scripts at NBCUniversal and Cinequest Film Festival. ...screenplays that have screened at film festivals across the nation. Kind Words-- "I’ve admired Donna’s scripts for years, and have long envied her agility as a writer. Her characters are funny, melancholy, and vital. When I wanted to create a script for my next film, I reached out to her to craft and complete the first couple of drafts. We worked together on my story, and she made sure I had a script in a fraction of the time it would take me on my own. Now that I have it in hand and can mold to my voice, Donna has worked as a coach and editor to get me through the final stages. I probably would have let the project wallow, if not for Donna’s skill, support, and kindness. I cannot recommend her highly enough for any project you want to develop." - Tony Jonick (Kingfisher Talking Pictures) "Donna Mae's impressive skill and talent is the conceiving of and the writing of sharp and compelling stories for the screen. She has a baked-in talent for it. I've seen it firsthand. I'd venture to say that she has the chops for whatever you're looking for, as well as, and the stream of consciousness to get it done quickly and creatively. I've optioned two of her script and produced one, "Happy Goat." That's the ultimate praise I can give her, is it not? I highly recommend her." - Leo Maselli (UVA Films) If you're interested in working with me, let's chat!

    I am an award-winning screenwriter and creative writer. My greatest strength is my imagination. I excel in writing warm, heartfelt stories that appeal to children and adults. I am particularly skilled in children's story writing having been a teaching assistant in my early 20s. Originally from the UK, I have a natural command of the English Language. However, I have traveled to many different countries and like to take inspiration from the different cultures and traditions I have experienced. I have worked for large Hollywood production companies, The Pleasance Theatre, The New Wolsey Theatre, BBC sounds, and a wide range of individuals. I have supported private clients in creative writing and have been a screenwriting lecturer at a film school in Beijing. You can read/listen to some of my work on Amazon, BBC radio uploads, and Potluck Zine.

How to Hire Top Screenwriters

What is a screenwriter?

Every scripted motion picture and television show, whether a comedy or a drama, requires the services of a screenwriter. A screenwriter is responsible for writing the script that actors rely on when voicing their character.

How do you hire a screenwriter?

You can source screenwriters on Upwork by following these three steps:

  1. Write a project description. You’ll want to determine your scope of work and the skills and requirements you are looking for in a screenwriter.
  2. Post it on Upwork. Once you’ve written a project description, post it to Upwork. Simply follow the prompts to help you input the information you collected to scope out your project.
  3. Shortlist and interview screenwriters. Once the proposals start coming in, create a shortlist of the professionals you want to interview. 

Of these three steps, your project description is where you will determine your scope of work and the specific type of screenwriter you need to complete your project. 

How much does it cost to hire a screenwriter?

Rates can vary due to many factors, including expertise and experience, location, and market conditions. Learn about the cost to hire a screenwriter.

How do you write a screenwriter job post?

Your job post is your chance to describe your project scope, budget, and talent needs. Although you don’t need a full job description as you would when hiring an employee, aim to provide enough detail for a contractor to know if they’re the right fit for the project.

Job post title

Create a simple title that describes exactly what you’re looking for. The idea is to target the keywords that your ideal candidate is likely to type into a job search bar to find your project. Here are some sample screenwriter job post titles:

  • Screenwriter needed for independent film
  • Need screenwriter to take outline and transform into script for TV pilot
  • Film script needs freshening up by screenwriter with excellent editing skills

Project description

An effective screenwriter job post should include: 

  • Scope of work: From writing an original script to improving an existing treatment, list all the deliverables you’ll need. 
  • Project length: Your job post should indicate whether this is a smaller or larger project. 
  • Background: If you prefer experience with certain media, tones, or genres, mention this here. 
  • Budget: Set a budget and note your preference for hourly rates vs. fixed-price contracts.

Screenwriter job responsibilities

Here are some examples of screenwriter job responsibilities:

  • Punch up existing film script to add more humor
  • Develop script for corporate video about sexual harassment in the workplace
  • Edit script to improve story flow and scene continuity

Screenwriter job requirements and qualifications

Be sure to include any requirements and qualifications you’re looking for in a screenwriter. Here are some examples:

  • Experience editing scripts for major Hollywood television productions
  • Film school degree with focus on script writing and editing
  • Filmography illustrating implementation of your scripts
