Praise for The Screenwriter's Manual

This is undoubtedly the most comprehensive work on the subject of screenplay formatting that I have ever read. I am blown away by the incredible detail and the amount of concrete information the authors have compiled. This is a colossal work!
David Wesner, Austin Peay State University

There is a wealth and generosity of important information which will guide so many early writers. Even the knowledgeable screenwriter can gain from this Manual.

The text is especially comprehensive. As a reference work for screenwriters of all levels of experience, it [is] invaluable.
Terry McAteer, Felician College
