“Anne Hamilton dramaturged my play in such an exact and precise way that I was able to access her notes and complete my rewrite effortlessly. She highlighted the core of her concerns and communicated them to me so as not to destroy inspiration, but instead encourage me to do my best work; to say what I wanted to say without being told what I should say. Together we were able to build scenes and find character truths, motivations and clarity and fully develop them accordingly. Anne is probably one the best dramaturgs working in America and I could not recommend her highly enough.”
" I must tell you that I have not yet received such eye opening and detailed comments like yours. As I now proceed, I find the rewrite so smooth and easy and rewarding when I follow your precise and to the point remarks on almost each and every scene in the script. Your elaborations on scenes, dialogue and film-structure point out to me the strong points as well as the weak sides in character and action building. Your contribution to putting the script on track was highly critical, and I hope very much that when you read the finished draft you’ll see that your effort
was worthwhile. "
“Talk about the right person at the right time! Anne Hamilton provided me with line-by-line insights into my new play, FRONTING THE ORDER, which helped me bring added life to my characters and soundness to the plot. What at first seemed perfect to me was diagnosed by Anne as in need of immediate surgery, which I performed to the betterment of the piece. To her credit, she's like the soothing voice on your GPS: she never scolds you for making a wrong turn, but puts you on the right route with grace and charm.”
"It is my privilege to recommend Anne Hamilton, dramaturg, to everyone. For the past few"Talking to Anne Hamilton is so inspiring! She helped me see all my creative gifts in a new light,and encouraged me with practical advice on how those gifts can better help me make a living as an artist. A conversation with Anne Hamilton is worth its weight in gold."
years Anne's insight, expertise and humanity have guided my screenwriting
to new heights! Her perceptions into storyline and characterization have opened new
windows for me as a screenwriter. She is a willing and open-hearted mentor whom I trust
completely to direct my writing."

"Anne offered me just the right degree of insight, gentle nudging, and generous affirmation
that I needed to continue work on my latest script. She helped me believe in the work
when I started doubting...and for a writer, that's crucial!"
