ScreenwritingU Coverage

ScreenwritingU’s Screenplay Coverage is Truly Original.

In the past decade, ScreenwritingU has helped over 500 writers land managers, make deals with producers, and get writing assignments. We’re serious about our students’ success. See for yourself what our writers have been up to lately.

Have you ever had script coverage that feels like it came from a robot? Or, it takes you three or four days to interpret the notes? I know how that goes, and it’s so disappointing….

Here’s our BIG promise:

When you receive your coverage from us, you will be ready to hit the ground running on your next draft with clear, actionable notes.

And if something is not clear for you, you’ll have five free follow-up emails to gain more insight and clarity. We truly want you to succeed.

You’re going to get thorough feedback and recommendations on how to improve areas that could be elevated. But we’re not going to tell you just what’s not working, but what really is working in your script.

Your script will be looked at not just from another screenwriter’s point of view, but also from the perspective of both a producer and an audience. Ultimately, these perspectives are the ones that really count, right?

We want you to create the best screenplay of your life. So, yes…our coverage will be critical, but always respectful and full of humanity. We’re writers too, and we understand that it takes some vulnerability to put your work out into the world.

Does that sound good to you? Let’s get to it!

What Other SU Alumni writers say about this special coverage:

“I’ve read and re-read your Coverage and want to thank you. The Coverage exceeded my expectations and is/was way beyond other reviews I’ve received in the past on other scripts.

It was also helpful to follow your instructions on revisiting lessons from the Pro Series as additions to your comments.”

Jim Eckmann – PS 38


“The coverage was fabulous – and the ‘What To Do Next’ was key – because it gave me a FRAMEWORK to use and focus on and think about – after three or four passes through the different skills my thinking evolved to a place that allowed me to elevate the story to where it needs to be.”

Mark Stogo – PS 38


The Coverage service that ScreenwritingU offered me is the most thorough and extensive I’ve had. I received logical, easy notes to follow with examples, and right on the money suggestions. I followed Dimitri’s notes exactly and the calibre of my script has shot through the roof.”

Emanuel Gironi – PS 41
