Who is Tammy Gross?
Tammy is an optioned, award-winning, indie-produced screenwriter. Every completed screenplay Tammy has entered into contests has either won or placed. This may be attributable to good storytelling, but just to get past early rounds, the prose must be thoroughly edited and properly formatted. And a writer must have a strong understanding of the "language of screenplay." This is the secret to Tammy's success!
Before starting her own screenwriting career, Tammy worked as a copy editor of a Chicagoland newspaper in the 1980s, completed novels and short stories (often under the pen name TK Blackburn), and freelanced as a graphic artist and proofreader.
Until editing became full-time, Tammy was a full-time musician, arranging, performing and writing songs since the early 1990s. (ChartsForChurches.com)
In 2009, Tammy founded Orlando Screenwriters for local screenwriters (and actors) to participate in live table reads and receive feedback. ProofMySpec.com was launched in early 2010 as an affordable proof-editing service for spec screenwriters globally. In 2013, Tammy founded Reel Writers Contest, currently on hiatus while other projects are in development.
Tammy's scripts have been optioned, indie-produced & even turned into a book. There are a lot of exciting things on the horizon...
Tammy is now TEFL (teach English as a foreign language) to better serve ESL (English as a second language) screenwriters!
In 2020, ProofMySpec will be elevated to a new level & receive a major facelift, offering several more services & lots of original content, courses & networking opportunities...
