The program’s objective is to help writers improve their craft so they may learn the skills necessary to help them achieve their goal of obtaining representation, selling or optioning their work, and/or landing a writing assignment. This program is for feature-length screenplays only.
Phase One: Two readers will evaluate your feature-length screenplays and provide written feedback analyzing structure, story development, characterization, dialogue, format, as well as overall impressions. If recommended by two readers, the script will advance to Phase Two.
Phase Two: Loglines of scripts that receive a double recommend from Phase One will be forwarded to our list of agents, managers and producers.
Please note, our readers will read your entire script and you will receive two detailed evaluations from two different readers. (All evaluations will be returned in the middle of January, 2022).
The Scriptwriters Network reserves the right to publicize the writer’s name and selected feature and/or screenplays.
**As an educational organization, SWN’s Hollywood Outreach Program’s objective is to better assist you in achieving your goals of becoming a better writer by providing positive, constructive detailed feedback/evaluations on your entire script.
Loglines and/or Scripts will be eligible to be read by industry professionals including studio executives, production companies, agents and managers based on their request from interest in the logline and genre.
