The ability to read and provide ratings for scripts is limited to our industry professional members. Writer members can choose to make their scripts avaliable for other writers to read, though.
Regardless of your download settings, other writers on the site will never be able to rate your screenplay. Some writers will be granted industry professional membership. Those decisions will be made based on the individual's potential to assist in advancing another writer's career, or the production of their screenplay.
We currently do not provide joint accounts for writing teams. Writing teams should sign up under one individual's name and resolve the issue of access to the account and shared payment between themselves. They will, of course, be able to associate both names with the screenplay everywhere on the Black List website and on the cover page to their script.
As of November 1, the Black List counts over 2,500 film industry professionals amongst its membership ranging from major and mid-major agency assistants to studio presidents of production and working creative talent (actors, directors, etc.). These are people involved in making major studio motion pictures and independent films likely to play in festivals and get distribution.
Screenwriter memberships are designed for those who would like to submit their work for consideration by our readers and industry professional members or WGA members who would like to list their work in our database. If you're looking for screenplays to represent, direct, produce, finance, etc., you should apply for an industry professional membership. If you're a screenwriter who would like to submit their work and receive an industry professional membership, sign up as a screenwriter and put your name on the wait list for industry professional membership separately, letting us know that you've already registered as a screenwriter.
