Q. Have you ever heard of a company called 'The Screenplay Agency"? I stumbled upon them and am wondering if they are legit.
I haven't, but that doesn't mean much. There are lots of small agencies I've never heard of.
I answer this question in much greater depth in my book, but three basic criteria:
Are they WGA signatory? (Check with the WGA
Are they in the (310), (424) or (323) area codes, or failing that, in (818) or (212)?
Do they charge fees for "critiques" or for any other service whatsoever?
The answers should be yes, yes and no.
UPDATE: Various people are not that impressed with The Screenplay Agency. See comments and do a quick Google.
