Screenwriting Website of the Week: Spec Scout

Unrepped screenwriters have more ways to get noticed than ever before. Spec Scout is one of the new platforms that allows writers to get feedback and exposure.

Meet the brains behind Spec Scout: Jason Scoggins (of The Scoggins Report), Tim Lambert, and Greg Gertmenian, both of Abbot Entertainment.

We'll let their "About" page speak for itself:

Spec Scout's mission is to be the best place to discover and promote the highest-quality screenplays, both on and off the market.

That's pretty bold, we know, but we've come up with an innovative way to get there. We've built a first-of-its-kind coverage library, developed a screenplay scoring system called the Spec Scout Score, and we've rolled everything up into a website designed to meet the needs of entertainment industry pros. We aim to promote the best material, whether it's already circulating Hollywood or has been submitted by aspiring screenwriters.

The result is a new level of transparency for the spec market, a level playing field for screenwriters, and a brand new way for aspiring writers to break into the business.
