|Let's Get This Submission Thing
If you're an author or a screenwriter looking to get your full-length work published or produced (no short stories, short scripts, poetry, or children's picture books), we need you to follow the procedures outlined below. Select the options that best pertain to you and your relationship with the agency.
Important Notes about Formatting Books and Scripts
Always use the proper formatting for your book or script. Failure to do so will very likely cost you an opportunity to see your book published. You'll find book formatting guidelines and formatting samples here.
When formatting a script, always use conventional script formats, as endorsed by the WGA.
Here's Why To Format This Way...
Publishers and producers are used to seeing manuscripts in one
format and do not appreciate or condone other formats. Creativity is
not an option here. Be creative in your writing. Be
conventional in your presentation. Get used to setting
up your manuscripts according to preferred formatting and always
use the proper formatting for your books and scripts. If you don't, you'll
have one very serious strike against you from the very start, and that
could turn out to be one strike too many!
