There are two tiers of screenwriter memberships, Guild and Non-Guild.
Non-guild members must host at least one screenplay or pilot ($30/script/month) in order for their membership to be active. We also encourage, but do not require, the purchase of at least one paid evaluation from our readers ($100/read for features and 1-hr pilots, $70/read for half-hour or less pilots). Only hosted scripts can receive evaluations.
Guild members must list information for at least one script to have an active membership. They are not required to host a script or purchase an evaluation, but may do so at a discount (20% off monthly hosting and evaluations).
Script Hosting: Hosting makes your script available to our industry members to download and read.
$30 per month
Script Evaluations: Evaluations are each completed by one of our paid readers and include numerical scores and abbreviated qualitative feedback.
$100 per evaluation
($70 for 1/2 hour pilots)
Are you ready to register?
If you don't have a completed feature screenplay or television pilot, you're probably not ready to make an account. You can still use our resources. Check out our FAQ for more information.
Do I qualify for industry membership?
Black List industry memberships are currently limited to working industry professionals, including but not limited to agents, managers, producers, directors, actors, financiers, and their employees for whom a significant part of their job is reading material of all forms. (If you can materially advance a writer's career or project in the normal course of doing business, you're likely eligible for membership.)
Industry memberships are approved by our team personally, and your patience is appreciated during that approval process. In most cases, you will receive a notification about your application within a few weeks, if not sooner.
If you do not hear back from us in that time, feel free to contact us at [email protected].
