Okay gang, as you no doubt have realized by now, there are a lot of services out there that try to separate a struggling screenwriter from their money. Some, like the Black List, offer reasonable value for their price - or at the very least, have a decent risk/reward ratio. And I've admitting in the past that there might be some merit to coverage services.
But one service I can't see myself endorsing in any form is the practice of "screenwriting coaches." There's something really predatory about dubious experts charging naive writers for the privileged of being mentored by them. Here's some free advice - you don't need them. Spend your money elsewhere.
