The CRS accepts submissions year round.  To submit your script for consideration, use the form below!
Each submission is $5.00.

All feature films, tv episodes, web series scripts, and short film scripts submitted from May 10th 2016 to Nov 1st 2016 will be eligible to win the Screenwriter’s Prize, which is script feedback from a professional story editor.

A Note about Feature Film Script Submission

If you are submitting part of a feature film script, send the entire script and clearly indicate in your email which 20 pages you would like considered for programming (ex: pp. 22-42). Due to the high volume of submissions, we are unable to read more than 25 pages of features.
