What they're saying about Writing Treatments to Sell: "Excellent Resource for All Writers!"
Five out of Five Stars Amazon Reviews:
"Writing Treatments That Sell, by Kenneth Atchity and Chi-Li Wong, is an excellent resource for any screenwriter who realizes the importance of writing successful treatments.
Many writers believe a treatment is another word for an outline, but the book makes it clear that a treatment is really a selling tool. While an outline is useful, a treatment must convey the essence of the screenplay. It should be written as a page turner.
A treatment should display conflict and resolution, character arcs, and the act structure of the screenplay. It should make the reader want to read the screenplay and see the movie. Kenneth Atchity and Chi-Li Wong show how to do that using excellent examples.
Additionally, the book provides information about the ins and outs of the film industry as well as how to protect your work through copyrighting. It offers more than the title suggests, and should be on every screenwriter’s shelf."
