Congratulations!  You've finished a draft of your screenplay, and now you're looking for an experienced reader to provide detailed feedback on the strengths and weaknesses of your plot, dialogue, characters, etc.
1. Contact
The first step is to write and say hi!  My e-mail address is, and I'll be happy to answer any questions you have about me and/or the process of screenplay analysis through!
2. Registration
The next (optional but recommended) step is to register your script with the Writer's Guild of America.  Registration provides objective, third-party verification of your claim to an original piece of writing, essentially proving your draft of a script existed as of the date of registration, thus helping to protect your rights in case of any future creative disputes. 
But remember:  nobody owns ideas.  What registration protects are the details of your particular VERSION of an idea.  (And that's a good thing:  otherwise somebody would already own every conceivable story concept, from "boy meets girl" to "underdog team wins sports championship against all odds," etc., and then where would we be?)  For more information on script registration click here
3. Release Form
Next, click on the RELEASE FORM link.  Print out the page, then sign and e-mail a .pdf or scanned copy of the form to OR mail a signed hard copy to New England Screenwriters, P.O. Box 440101, Somerville, MA 02144.  (Sorry for all the release form legal-ese, but it's the best way to protect us both from any misunderstandings...feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns!)
4. Sending Material For Analysis
If you send your release form by regular mail, you can also include a hard copy of the material you'd like me to read before our consultation. 
If you'd prefer to e-mail your material as a digital file, first e-mail or mail the signed release form.  I'll notify you when I receive the form, at which point you can e-mail your material as a Word (.doc), Rich Text Format (.rtf), or Adobe (.pdf) file.
Remember, I cannot accept or read any material without a signed release form!
5. Analysis & Payment
