Driven by a lifetime passion that’s become full-time occupation, optioned screenwriter Mark Golik seeks to develop marketable stories that explore the inner commonality of humankind. Tales with unique, compelling characters thrust into extraordinary situations who find a way to see themselves – for good or bad – in their adversaries and in one another.

Specializing in true stories and adaptations – including many off the beaten path – Mark is open to assignment work in all genres. Steeled with an extensive background in marketing and corporate communications, he’s also an invaluable savvy partner to have on board throughout the production process.

Mark is a past presenter at the annual Creative Screenwriting Expo in Los Angeles, and is available for speaking engagements, seminars, workshops, panel discussions and other presentations for large and small groups. Topics include: Breaking in from Outside L.A., Crafting the Perfect Logline, and Making Your Query Letter Pitch Perfect.

Work with Mark on a project and you get a bonus: a true business partner, a writer who can draw from an extensive career in corporate communications and marketing to help develop and review proposals and business plans, and work with you to fine tune other pitch materials.

Mark becomes your co-producer, a collaborative partner who “gets” it. An added valuable part of the production team that extends beyond the script.

Consulting services to help you market yourself and your screenplays ... coming later this year.

I highly recommend working with Mark. He looks for and finds those little details that not only tighten the story but add richness to characters, making them more authentic to the world I’ve created.
