As an accomplished freelance writer for more than a decade, but a novice screenwriter by hobby, Brian Scott knows the value of honing one’s craft to perfection. “The screenwriting trade is the most difficult field to break into for a writer of any skill-level,” according to Scott. “You can be the most prolific writer with a few self-published books in your repertoire, but none of this matters if you don’t learn the rules of screenwriting, and knowing how to pitch your finished script.”

Following each recommended book, Scott adds his own insights and tips from what he has learned from the author. He presents these tips in a concise List-style format so that readers can quickly glean the most valuable advice.
