Let's be honest: there's a lot that you have to keep in mind when writing a screenplay. You have to make sure your structure is strong, your characters are compelling, your dialogue is sharp and the tone is clear. But did you know that an improperly formatted script is just as much of a deal breaker for a reader as any of these other elements? 

It's always a good idea to get a second pair of eyes on your work before submitting it anywhere, but with the right tools at your disposal, you can polish and clean your drafts all on your own!  

Roadmap favorite Bev Neufeld has just the class for you! 

This 2-Week Clinic Will Cover: 

  • Professional formatting dos and don'ts
  • How to avoid common pitfalls 
  • When to break the rules 
  • Feedback on your pages 
  • Live Q&A!
