New! Contest Prep Report

Is Your Script Contest-Ready?

Will your script hook the Reader? Have you clearly articulated the premise? Do you have mistakes in your story’s chronology?

If your strategy is to submit the first draft of your screenplay to “see what happens” your strategy is misguided and not a good use of your entry fee.  Many writers submit to multiple contests, meaning they often spend hundreds of dollars on entry fees for scripts that don't advance. And they often don't find out why.

I’m a professional freelance Story Analyst and I've helped judge hundreds of screenwriting contest submissions. Most submissions die in the first round of judging because they're not ready to compete. Based on my experience, I developed a detailed, three-page Contest Prep Report that will evaluate 15 criteria including character introductions and readability, plus provide written feedback and a list of top action items. This Report will raise the red flags so you can fix them before spending money on contest entry fees.

Submit payment of $70 for feature-length screenplays and then email a PDF of your script to Please allow up to two weeks for delivery of Report. For expedited service of three days please choose Rush Delivery in the drop-down menu. Report currently available for feature-length screenplays only.
