Essential info for screenwriters...it's about formatting, not the creative work, but formatting makes a ton of difference in LA (and other places, I assume).

This book was highly recommended by my screenwriting teacher, Mick Curran. It provides information about the real world of submitting scripts - creating a professional script that will (hopefully) make it past the readers and lead to a sale.
