Everything You’ll Get With Margin Notes For $499

♦  Extensive on-the-page notes made directly onto your screenplay. The reader of your choice will go page-by-page and scene-by-scene through the script giving feedback on its core concept, plot, structure, characters, scenes, genre, dialogue, theme, writing style and formatting.

♦  Industry connections. If our reader really likes your script and gives it a “Recommend” grade, we may ask you if you’d like them to pass it on to their manager or agent or other industry contacts.

 Free follow-up email service. Feel free to email us after receiving your Margin Notes with one or two questions if you need clarification on certain points.

♦  Guaranteed five-star service. Our average client rating on Google+ and Facebook is five out of five stars. You can read what other writers just like yourself have been saying about our services on our Reviews page.

♦  Super-fast turnaround time. We strive to return our Line Edits to writers as fast as possible. The turnaround time is approximately 14 days, but if you need it back even sooner we have a 2-Day Rush and 5-Day Rush services available.

Answers to Some Frequently Asked Questions

You’ll probably find the answer to any question you may have about our Margin Notes below, but if not you can find more answers in our knowledge base.

Q1. What the difference between Margin Notes and a Line Edit? Margin Notes differ from a Line Edit in that no description and dialogue edits are made on the page—only story notes are made on the page. With a Line Edit no story recommendations are given—only description and dialogue edits are made on the page.

Q2. Do Margin Notes include a Proofread/Formatting service? No. If you’d like all grammatical errors and formatting quirks flagged up, you could purchase a Proofread on top or a Line Edit.

Q3. When will I get my Margin Notes back? The turnaround time is approximately 14 days. If you order a 2-Day Rush or 5-Day Rush, though, you’ll get your screenplay coverage back within that timeframe.

Q4. My script is over 125 pages. Is this the same price? If your script is over 125 pages, please email us, quoting the page count, and that you’re looking to purchase extra pages for Margin Notes. We’ll then get back to you with a customized button with each extra page charged at $2. 

Q5. What format should I send in my screenplay to you? Please attach your script as an editable file, such as Final Draft, Movie Magic, Fade In, WriterDuet, etc. Please contact us first if you have a script written using a non-professional format, such as MS Word.

Q6. How do I pick my preferred script reader? When you purchase Margin Notes, you’ll be asked to fill out a form after checkout which asks who you’d like to review your script. Nine times out of ten we’ll be able to assign the script to your preferred first or second choice reader. In the rare instance neither are available, we’ll email you with other options.

Q7. Can I send the reader other things along with my script? We don’t pass anything on to the reader other than the screenplay, such as treatments, character breakdowns, research notes or photos. However, if you’d like us to read something extra, please choose from one of our script coverage services. Thanks for understanding 🙂
