Telling stories that move you on screen and in fiction.

Also: queer, trans* (they/them).

Jay Pendragon

I'm a queer, trans* screenwriter and writer of fiction. As a copywriter and sensitivity editor, I also use my powers to help folks express their visions better.

Screenwriting

Jay offers free feedback as well as paid sensitivity editing. Don't lose your audience by accident. Provocation slays – alienation kills!

Filmmaking

Jay Pendragon has on-set experience, both as a director and a PA. Their commercial work includes a anniversary video for a German library as well as scripts for tutorial videos.

Writing & Services

You need a second pair of eyes for your script? A skilled writer to craft copy? Or a person with a unique voice for a guest blog? I can of service.

Does your story need a sensitivity reader?

All writing's ultimate test is how it resonates with the reader. While provocation is good, the last thing you want is to alienate. That's where a sensitivity reader comes in!

Screenwriting

Film and tv writing is an art as much as it is a craft. First and foremost, though, it's FUN! That's even more evident when I do rewrites for producers, who trust me to execute their vision.

Copywriting

You have a vision – I just help you express it better! Yup, as of 2020, I'm spreading my copywriting wings. I specialize in website copy, emails and funnel writing. How can I help you in 2020?

Fiction

There is nothing like creating a world from scratch and filling it with compelling characters and conflict. Even better when you get to move readers with your tales! Stay tuned for my upcoming books: a short tale called 'Bake Me A Bullet' and novel called 'The Masks We Wear'.

Content Writing

The internet truly opened up the ways in which we can share our stories. I love reading long-form content that has a voice and a unique perspective... and, of course, writing them! Check out my blog or my Medium profile for samples.
