How to get a table reading of your own –

  • Attend 2 meetings. Open slots in the rotation will be given to writers who display a desire to give constructive feedback as well as receive it.
  • Please don’t feel you have to constantly give great notes. All we ask is that you refrain from rewriting others or making comments such as, “This is how I would have written it.”
  • Writers will select 15-20 continuous pages from a work-in-progress script.
  • Writers will bring in sufficient copies, one highlighted copy for each character to be read by an actor, plus one for the narrator.
  • Note: Multiple minor characters may be assigned to one actor, if they don’t have dialogue in the same scene.
