Script Submissions

At Smith Scripts we would like to attract a wide range of works covering a variety of subject matters and genres so that we can attract a wide audience of people looking for something new.

PLEASE NOTE – WE ARE NOT ABLE TO RE-FORMAT SCRIPTS AND THEREFORE, THEY ARE SOLD AS YOU PRESENT THEM TO US. THE PRESENTATION OF A SCRIPT CAN DETERMINE SALES YOU MAY GET.

WE WOULD ASK THAT THE SCRIPT IS PROVIDED IN A READABLE FORMAT, PREFERABLY DOUBLE-SPACED AND WITH STAGE DIRECTIONS MADE VERY DISTINCT (BOLD AND/OR ITALIC) FROM THE MAIN TEXT.

WE HAVE CREATED A STANDARD OF PRESENTATION WHICH FULFILS OUR REQUIREMENTS – IT IS NOT OBLIGATORY TO USE THESE GUIDELINES, BUT EXPERIENCE TELLS US IT CREATES A BETTER IMPRESSION AND IS USEFUL TO WRITER AND READER.

STANDARD ‘SMITH SCRIPTS’ FORMAT GUIDELINES CAN BE SEEN HERE

Once we have accepted a submission we will add your work to our online Script Store along with a short blurb (which we will ask you to send to us) and will include a few pages of your script (unless it is a too short to do that feasibly) for people to download as a taster!

A list of fees which we require performers to pay is listed separately on this site

There is a small cost to include your script on the site, but we do pay 75% of all script sales and performance fees back to the writer. This is incredibly good value compared with many similar organisations.

If you have any questions at all, please feel free to contact us.

We look forward to reading what you have written!
