Will you read my script?

I get this question quite often:

“Will you read my script?”

I simply don’t have time to read people’s scripts.

I get the sense from a lot of people who want me to read their script that they’re hoping I’ll read their script, think it’s terrific, and then pass it along to some Hollywood heavy hitter who will buy it. There’s zero chance of that happening. Not because your script isn’t terrific, it very well might be. But I’m not in a position to sell your script any more than I am in a position to sell any of the 20+ spec scripts that I’ve written that are sitting on my shelf. Believe me, I wish I could.

If you’re serious about getting professional notes on your script (which is the absolute most you could hope for by me reading your script) I recommend that you check out my post on script consultants. If you don’t have friends in the industry who will read and critique your work you should seriously consider spending a few bucks and getting a professional script reader to look over your material before you submit it.
