Give your own script the best chance of success – check your script against our writing tips and submissions tips before you finalize it and submit it!
As you can imagine, we read a LOT of scripts, and we read a lot ABOUT scripts. Give your own script the best chance of success – read our writing tips and submissions tips, and check them against your own script before you finalize it and submit! All of our judges and analysts have their own views, sure, and some of the thoughts here are individual to the person who’s been quoted, and you should be prepared to fight for what you believe is right about your script – but in general, all of these are published here to help you. We also aim to publish new tips every week – so keep coming back and refreshing your thinking.
Another tip – if this page is getting long, use the ‘Find’ feature on your browser (usually activated by Ctrl+F or Apple+F) to seek out our tips about whatever aspect of your script you’re currently considering.
