Win a Table Read of Your Full Script
Script Reading Panel
The Script Reading Panel is made up of professional actors and scriptwriter, novelist and producer Angela Elliott. Each week we have an online table read of first 10 minutes of your scripts and we then discuss and give feedback. We post the read and feedback on Youtube and share links with the writers and on twitter.
The Script Reading Panel feels that now is the time to roll out a competition to win a full read by the panel, with feedback.
