I ordered a “Margin Notes + 2 Readers + RUSH.” The notes were returned under 48 hours without compromising on the quality of work. Script Reader Pro is definitely the best screenwriting service out there.

I chose the ‘margin notes’ and I’m really pleased I did. This is genuinely helpful, specific and detailed feedback of a very high standard. Going forward, I wouldn’t use any of the other services out there again.

I’ve used Script Reader Pro services twice: Margin Notes and Line Edit. Not only were the weaknesses noted but how to fix them. The strengths were also pointed out. I will definitely use Script Reader Pro again.

Does your script make the grade? If so, it could get passed on to our industry contacts.

If your chosen writer really likes your script, they may ask if you’d like them to pass it on to their manager, agent or other industry contacts for consideration.

Everything you’ll get with our
Margin Notes service. 

• Extensive on-the-page notes made directly onto your script. The pro of your choice will go page-by-page and scene-by-scene through the script giving feedback on its plot, structure, characters, scenes, dialogue, writing style, formatting, etc.

• Industry connections. If our reader really likes your script we may ask you if you’d like them to pass it on to their manager or agent or other industry contacts. (Note: There’s no Ratings Grid or “Recommend” grade with Margin Notes.)

• Free follow-up email service. We won’t just send you your script and leave it at that. You can email us afterward with any questions you may have about the notes. (Within reason! One or two short questions are welcome but if you want to ask more we may need to charge a small fee to cover the time taken.)

• Guaranteed five-star service. Our average client rating on Google and Facebook is 5/5 stars. You can read what other writers just like yourself say about our script coverage services on our Reviews page.

• Super-fast turnaround time. We strive to return all scripts back to writers as fast as possible. The standard turnaround time is 14 days, but if you need it back sooner you can choose a 3-Day or 7-Day Rush service at checkout.

Step-by-step purchasing instructions.

Ready to see your script how a pro screenwriter sees it? Get started by following the simple instructions below:

1. Choose either Feature or TV Margin Notes and add an additional service during checkout if required, such as a 3-Day or 7-Day Rush or 2-Reader service. (Our standard turnaround time is 14 days.)

2. Make a payment. Before purchasing, please check that your script isn’t over the page counts listed below. When you’re ready, you’ll be transferred to a secure payment gateway to complete the purchase via credit card, debit card, ApplePay or PayPal.

3. Choose your preferred pro writer. At this stage, you’ll be able to pick who you would like to complete your Margin Notes. Then, once you’ve uploaded your script (as an EDITABLE file) you’ll be good to go!

4. Sit back and relax. You’ll receive an email letting you know we’ve successfully received your script and are assigning it to a pro writer. (No need to email us for updates before your turnaround time is up. You’ll receive your notes within 3, 7 or 14 days depending on your chosen turnaround time.)


IMPORTANT NOTICE: Please note these page count limits before purchasing:

• Feature scripts: up to 125 pages.

• TV scripts: up to 65 pages.

If yours is over, please contact us at hello[at] quoting your page count AND that you’re looking to purchase extra pages for a Feature or TV Line Edit. (Each extra page is charged at $2.)

Pick one of our pro screenwriters to give you a reader-reaction to your script’s characters, story, pacing, dialogue, etc. page-by-page, scene-by-scene.


Line Edit doesn’t include feedback notes on the page. It only includes description and dialogue edits on the page.

Margin Notes don’t include description and dialogue edits, only feedback notes.

No, if you’d like all grammatical errors and formatting quirks flagged up as well as the Margin Notes, you’d need to purchase a Proofread/Format on top, or for a more in-depth edit a Line Edit.

The standard turnaround time is 14 days. If you order a 3-Day or 7-Day Rush, however, you’ll get your script back within that timeframe.

No need to email us for an update if the 3, 7 or 14 days aren’t up yet—your chosen pro either has your script on their to-do list or are working on it. 🙂

Here’s the 2-step plan to picking the pro of your choice:

1. If you haven’t already, check out our writers’ profiles on our About Us page. There you’ll find their mini-bios and genre specialties.

2. During checkout, you’ll be asked for your first and second choice. If your first choice isn’t available your script will go to your second choice. In the unlikely event your second choice isn’t available, we’ll contact you.

Please note: If you leave your second choice as “I don’t mind” we’ll send your script to who’s available and best suited to your script’s genre.

Yes! We won’t claim any copyright over your work at all during the process. Every idea we suggest or piece of feedback that you take on board and add to your script will be completely 100 percent your own.

Every script that’s sent to us remains completely the author’s intellectual property, and we will under no circumstances release, or let your script be viewed, by any third party without your prior consent.

We also never accept royalties. We’re just here to help you make it as a screenwriter and all we ask is that you invite us to the premiere.

Unfortunately, no, we don’t offer payment by installment plan for coverage, consultancy calls, Margin Notes, Line Edits or Proofreads.
