Guest Editor Eddie Gamarra re: Agents for Your Script or Book-to-Film Rights

posted 9/4/13

Dear Editor…

I was talking to my screenwriting professor about getting an agent.  He informed me that writer-directors do not get talent agents, but have to get literary agents. I have a producer already interested in my work, so I thought it might be safe if I sought representation. Is this true? How do I go about that?

Sincerely,
J.

Guest Editor Warren Lewis re: Format of Nursery Rhyme within a Play Script

posted 6/19/12

Dear Editor…

I’m writing to check with you on the format of a nursery rhyme recited by a character within the format of a play script. Currently, I have the nursery rhyme indented five spaces from the remaining words. Is there a standard way to format this kind of element?

Thanks,
Leni
