Q. What is screenplay coverage?

    A. It's an analysis of your screenplay that includes a summary and a critique of your story. The people who write coverage are known as readers or screen story analysts. They evaluate the huge number of script submissions given to producers and agents. Very often, a producer or agent will only read your screenplay if a reader has recommended it.

    For that reason, you should make sure your screenplay has been properly formatted and has been checked for correct spelling and grammar.

    Movie Magic Screenwriter 2000 is a great, user-friendly screenwriting program that automates the script formatting process, and includes spell check and grammar check features. The program is as easy to use as Microsoft Word.
