Craig Mazin and John August occasionally do a Three Page Challenge, in which they look at listener-submitted entries and offer suggestions. It’s not a contest. It’s strictly for the learns.

If you’d like us to consider your three pages, here are some important caveats:

  • Three pages of screenplay or teleplay, folks. Anything longer will be deleted immediately.

  • A cover page is okay but not required. (It doesn’t count as one of your three pages.) It’s your choice whether you want to put your contact information on a cover page.

  • Don’t send in log lines, synopses or anything else.

  • PDFs or Fountain are both okay. No .fdx, no Celtx, or anything else, please.

  • We need your real name. For this, no pseudonyms are allowed.

Frequently Asked Questions

  1. I submitted a Three Page Challenge before. Do I need to resubmit? No. Whether you submitted on this form or via the old email address, we have your script in the system.

  2. I’m part of a writing team. How should we submit? Just use one of your names on the submission form. On the actual cover page of your PDF or Fountain file, use both.

  3. Can I submit a script based on something else, eg. fan fiction? Your call, but we really prefer original material.

  4. Can I submit more than one? No. One entry per person, please.
