    My favorite magazine, February 26, 2005

    I subscribe to Entertainment Weekly, Premiere, and any magazine with a photo of Johnny Depp or hobbits on the cover, but Scr(i)pt is my favorite magazine.
    Every issue of Scr(i)pt has articles by the screenwriters of movies that are just opening, explaining something about how the movie was written and featuring excerpts from the screennplay of that movie. These are triply helpful, as they (1) provide insight into how a successful screenwriter works his craft, (2) supply brief examples of what the movie you just saw (or are about to see) looks like on the page, and (3) are a useful tool in deciding which movie to go see Saturday night.
    Each issue also has articles of the more general How To… variety, although these range from How To Write Great Scenes/Characters to How To Pitch To Studios to Why Studio Execs Are Using Your Script To Wrap Fish. For a while there was a series of articles that were simply a compilation of all the genre cliches, written in the hopes that if you knew what they were you could avoid them; they were invariably hilarious. These How To/Writing Advice articles are often extremely funny (this is not meant as an insult–they are meant to be funny as well as helpful).
    Finally, every issue has the news on sales, contest winners, and whatnot that is essential for any working screenwriter, with a generous helping of heartwarming success stories to keep your spirits up while you’re waiting to hear from the studios.
    I highly recommend this magazine. Enjoy!

    This review is from: Script Magazine (Magazine)

    I have subscribed to a few magazines like Creative Screenwriting and Writers Digest. I think this is one of the best magazines because it really looks at the writer and what writers go through in regards to writing a script. It’s focus is not just on major movies like Creative Screenwriting. I think the big difference between the two is that Script has a variety of films/television it reviews and critiques. Also, it adds a writers view more than an editorial on a mega blockbuster film. Yes, you need to understand a review of a high concept film, but wouldn’t you rather have a magazine like Script that provides information on what is a high concept first? And then break’s down the craft and creative process? Sometimes it does it quite well, but capturing the writers perspective. if you are not certain whether to choose Script or Creative Screenwriting, let me help you, Choose SCRIPT! Thanks.
