Hi,

Has anyone used or does anyone have any info on the screenwriters guild? They have a coverage service that I was thinking of using or I was thinking of using one of their approved script consultants on their site at www.screenwritersguild.org/sgaconsultants.htm but i'm not sure which one.

Any info would be great.

Thanks in advance
Frank

P.S I've posted this in the script services section as well because I wasn't sure which area was most appropriate.

you might want to check with the WGA first, see if there's anything to these guys or if they're just calling themselves THe Screenwriters Guild. My bet, they're just calling themselves something like that to attract suckers and their money.

Do not confuse this organization with
the WGA or even SAG.

This seems to be an organization of
(respectable) dramaturgs who are
selling their wares.

Some are more reasonably priced
than others.

Some actually charge money to
critique your query letter. :eek

Although many will slam these
consultants, there is nothing wrong
with investing your money in a
solid analysis. (It's no more a
waste of money than all those
contests.)

Just shop wise. Ask for samples
first. And be sure YOU are in a
place (with your craft) to handle
a rewrite based on notes that
could cost half-a-month's rent.
