Stories should meet submitting a manuscript for assessment

To get a script assessed deliver a one-to-two page maximum synopsis of your work and your work (up to a maximum of twenty-five pages total, do not give us the whole work unless it is under twenty-five pages even if its twenty-six pages in length, if we want the whole script we will ask for it) (note we have a copyright protection agreement, any submitted story or story ideas are to be held in confidence and the material is not to be used without the consent of the individual who submitted it, if breaching copyrihgt / steealing of ideas ocurs then the party may take legal action) stories should meet with the following

 

  • Line spacing: the pages should be double-spaced, or one-and-a-half spaced lines, to make the pages easier to reed. Most publishers have these same preferences. ‘Spacing’ here means spacing between the lines of typing, not the spacing between the words or letters
  • the font style should be times new roman, Arial/ Arial black or something simple, nothing cursive or in a calligraphy style, no italic’s, bolding or underlining
  • the size of the font should be consistent and between 12-16
  • soft copy, please don’t send manuscripts of your work to us unless we specifically ask
  • Hard copy, please don’t staple or get it bound, we prefer that the material be unbound in the form of loose sheets (unless it’s in a binder)
  • when you give us your manuscript, you must tell us if any publishers/producers have seen any version of the work
  • make shore that all items have your name and address clearly marked on them, don’t put your details on every page just the front page
  • please number all pages

please keep in mind being patient as we asses works from multiple individuals with multiple stories the assessment may take six to eight weeks in total and cannot always be available, although if you want updates feel free to inquire.
