get paid to be a screenwriter
Find Paid Screenwriting Work. Sell A Script. Land Representation.
Premium Membership was created for those specifically seeking PAID screenwriting opportunities. When you purchase Screenwriting Staffing's Premium Membership, you are connected with our database of tv/film industry professionals on our "premium members" only page. These are professionals actively looking to buy/option screenplays, hire a screenwriter, represent/manage new writing talent, and more!
So what's included in Premium Membership?
That's not all! All Premium Members get incredibly fast customer service responses. Have a screenwriting-related question that's not associated with Screenwriting Staffing? No worries! Just shoot us an email. Premium Members also receive discounts on screenwriting contests and other screenwriting-related products, as well as tips and tricks to submitting to our leads.
Premium Membership is different than other sites who offer screenwriting leads. You do not have to submit through a third party form, where the employer's identity is hidden. It's simple and fast for you and the employer. The leads are sent directly to your inbox. You are given direct contact information to the industry pro (includes personal/company e-mails, IMDb/company pages, and exclusive details regarding their specific search). Don't use your email often? No worries. You can access all the leads on our private members page.

Q: How do I know if your leads fit my current needs?
A: We post past leads (a couple months worth) on our Screenwriting Jobs & Script Search Page. This gives you a clear understanding of what sort of leads we syndicate via our site. You can also enroll in our FREE membership, as well.
Q: What's the easiest way to finding success through SS Premium Membership?
A: We encourage all of our Premium Members who are looking to sell their script to have at least one script completed (multiple is even better). Writers who find success via our site also have a professional and effective query letter to send to interested parties. We encourage all writers seeking employment to have one of the following (if not all): IMDb, screenwriting resume, video reel (vimeo, youtube), social media, and bio. Of course, how you submit is your choice, but having some of these in your arsenal is always a plus.
Q: How do logline submissions work through SS Premium Membership?
A: Year members may submit a logline for each month they are a member. That means they can submit a new logline once a month for 12 months. One month members may submit 1 logline for each month they are enrolled.
Q: Does SS make a percentage off of sales or jobs?
A: Absolutely NOT. We are not a literary agency. We are the middleman. Industry pros come to us with their screenwriting needs. We send them to you, the screenwriter. All negotiations and deals are done between you and the industry pro.
Q: When you send out leads, do you just provide the pro's name and e-mail?
A: We list the employer's full name and preferred e-mail, yes, but we also provide links to their IMDb, web-site, social media, publications, interviews, and more. The more active the pro is in the industry, the more links we will have to provide.
Q: What makes your PREMIUM membership different than your FREE membership?
A: Leads. Plain and simple. FREE leads usually are collaboration, volunteer, and/or deferred payment opportunities. PREMIUM is strictly PAID opportunities. Other PREMIUM perks include FREE logline submissions, FREE script coverage, FREE resume assistance, discounts, and more.
Q: How does billing work for SS Premium Membership?
A: You have 2 choices. 1 year ($129.99) or month-to-month ($19.99). If you choose the 1 year option, you are billed once every year. Month-to-Month, of course, is billed every month. You can cancel your reoccurring payments at anytime via your Pay Pal account. At that time, you will NO longer be billed. Don't use Pay Pal? While Pay Pal is our preferred method, we do use other methods. But only for those wishing to sign up for a full year. Contact us for more details.
