When we launched Screenwriting.io two years ago, we called it a beta, because it was just barely useful.

But in the past 24 months, it has grown a lot. The site now features more than 100 short articles answering basic questions about screenwriting. Each week, we get thousands of visitors.

So today we’re shedding the beta label.

Screenwriting.io is aimed at simple questions like:

What is the difference between a script, a screenplay, and a teleplay?

Why is the last “w” of WGAw lowercase?

What is scale?

How do you format a montage in a screenplay?

Can scene headers be bold?

These are questions so basic they would feel awkward on johnaugust.com. But they deserve answers.

My mandate to Ryan and Stuart was straightforward: each page should be The Answer. If answering one question raises new questions, new pages should answer those questions.

Stuart handles most of the questions that come into Screenwriting.io. If he doesn’t know the answer, he asks me. Either way, he provides links to information on johnaugust.com and other sites for further details.

So if you have a simple question about screenwriting, Screenwriting.io might be a good first stop. It’s also a handy place to refer newcomers to the craft.
