Hi! I'm Iolana James. I first put pen to page around the age of five. My Mom was my fanbase. She encouraged me towards it and I've been writing ever since. Initially for businesses and their products and services.

Not too long ago I wrote my first script for TV and it received a lot of interest. I really enjoyed the process and sense of fulfillment  so I wrote another. And another. They caught the eye of a popular kids network that I hope will help make them real - that would sure be groovy. Turns out that I might have a knack for this style of writing; and what I really love about it is the freedom to craft stories in any and all directions. The process has made me a better writer; definitely more creative; more prolific in ways that elicit and stir emotion. The stories I write are mostly on the happy, bright side of the pendulum. Not to say all my days are good; it's just where I go when I write: storytelling is my happy place.

A while back I was a writing tutor as a side gig and saw the positive impact writing had on the kids. They became better communicators, it gave them confidence, they learned more eagerly. They related to one another better and didn't think as much about being boys and girls - they were just kids. Naturally, I decided to write a children's book; well, it's a really a book series; and it's educational and that can take a while. So can the business of selling scripts. In the meantime, whilst I wait for the good fortune of Hollywood to shine its spotlight in my direction, I teach the art of script writing to youngsters. Right now I work locally, but the goal is to create a digital format and offer online courses so that it's more accessible. I call this venture 'Script Kidz' and through it I inspire young writers to shape incredible short stories and magical worlds for screens of all sizes.

That’s where you come in. I'm just getting started and hope to be lucky enough to have a loyal community of readers who follow me on this journey, as well as holding me to account when I need it. I'm asking for your support, if you can afford it, because I want to teach and create writing works that inform, connect, and inspire; not clutter the internet with more salesy content and clickbait for page view targets. I'd like your support to make more meaningful work, starting with the book I’m currently working on that educates kids about our world in a way that's light, fun and entertaining. I'd like your support so that I can teach young writers to craft their own stories and do it in a way that will progress them the necessary steps to get them created and out to the masses. I'd like to see more family friendly content on TV and the streaming channels. And not just for kids; just more shows to watch that aren't laden with sex, f-bombs, and extreme violence. And in the process positively impact young writers.

The donations level is set low because I want anyone who resonates with this work to be able to be a part of this community- if all you can afford is a couple of dollars a month, but you still want to be on board and support, that's huge, and that's plenty. If you can afford more, that would be fantastic- the more I can be directly funded by readers, the more exciting things I can do.

I'd like to see more family friendly content on TV and the streaming channels and in the process make a positive impact in the lives of young writers. I think Script Kidz is a place to contribute that - but I can't do it without help.

Thank you!
