Memoir Ghostwriter

hourly rate: $65

Jackson Bentele writes screenplays, stories, film criticism, podcasts and comic books. Based in Los Angeles and a graduate of USC's Screenwriting program, he has worked in writers' rooms for high budget superhero sagas, mid-range horror-comedies, and start-up podcast companies (that would go on to be acquired by Spotify). His own work has been nominated for the Humanitas Student Drama Fellowship, and landed him on the Tracking Board Launch Pad Pilots list. As a ghostwriter working with your original material, Jackson values collaboration highly. His goal is to help you find the narrative sculpture imbedded within your life story, and to be the guide that brings it forward with all of its emotional integrity, thematic purpose, and human heart intact. There is a thin line between reality and fiction, but the possibilities are boundless. Nothing excites Jackson more than venturing into that untamed narrative wilderness in search of stories that deserve to be told.

 

When he's not writing, Jackson works as an outreach volunteer and co-chair for the SELAH Eagle Rock Homelessness Coalition, dreams about wanting to hike more, and reads eight books at a time in his favorite chair because it's definitely more efficient that way.

Pernell Quilon is a copywriter, ghostwriter, and gay man based in Los Angeles. He was recently a writer/illustrator for the cult-favorite newsletter Today in Tabs—his daily cartoons were shouted out in The Atlantic. Before he peaked, he worked in creative development for unscripted series with MTV, Snapchat’s Vertical Networks, and Scout Productions (of “Queer Eye” fame). He also wrote for Brother, a millennial lifestyle brand with over 20 million Snapchat subscribers, and is a contributing author to their HarperCollins-published book How To Not Be A Dick.

 

Heartfelt stories with a kick are Pernell’s biggest passion. Are you looking for writing that will make your audience laugh/cry/roll in their graves? Hit him up. From his reality TV era, he learned to: get to the dark meat of every story in seconds, morph any idea into a strong pitch, and break down a C-stand in 20 seconds or less. 

 

When Pernell isn’t writing, he’s on Zillow looking up homes in distant cities—no reason.
