This is ambiguous on the Nicholl site.
The fellowship is split between the collaborators.

If you would point it out, we could fix it. Apparently, it's been overlooked for a long, long time.

Greg, are reader comments being posted every day? I think today's and another one this past week were skipped.

No, they're not. We've been on a two-days with, one without schedule thus far.

Since we're posting excerpts about six weeks earlier than last year, we wanted to start out slowly.

Is it "nary"?

Why? Nary is a word.

The only typo I could spot is "repertoire" is spelled "repetoire".

Thanks for answering my question.

On page 2. April's dialogue:

APRIL
No bold, no itals, no script
fonts, no Gothic, no Helvetica,
no Times Roman. Stick with
Courier. That's the industry
standard.

I think April meant to say "italics" not "itals." It could be argued that April has her own personal slang and always refers to italics as "itals," so I'll leave that up to you whether that's a typo or not. Dialogue is a gray area.

Then there's page 11: repetoire. Here, again, perhaps you intended for the actress to pronounce repertoire in a specific way (without the 'r').

April did indeed mean to say "itals." That's just her way.

"Repetoire" is a typo; and it has been overlooked for years. Thanks to those of you who pointed it out.

We might have to rewrite the quoted section as at least bold is appearing more often in scripts these days.

My script - as I'm sure a lot of my fellow writers do - has italics (dialogue and action slugs) and bold (scene headings) in parts of the script. And in the title, a non-Courier font. Is this allowable or will we have points deducted from our style-part of the evaluation?

I'm not sure a lot of writers are regularly using bold and italics throughout their scripts, but some certainly are. Many scripts have non-Courier titles.

Points are not deducted by any reader I know for such usage.

Hi Greg!

I use celtx and it automatically formats the script when creating a PDF.

In scene descriptions it forces a single space after periods, even if you initially had a double space.

Visually I think it still looks fine, but how do you and your staff feel about it?
