Before accepting a writing gig and spending hours of your time working on someone else’s project, always remember: not all screenwriting jobs are worth doing.

There are many people who seem to think newbie writers are there to be taken advantage of. In other words, to write for them for free.

If someone promises payment “down the line,” or that they’ve got “a big star attached to direct,” proceed with extreme caution. This is not what we mean by great screenwriting jobs.

Always remember: if it seems to be good to be true, it probably is.

The truth is, there is no one, easy, quick-fix way to get screenwriting jobs. Answering an ad on one of these sites is highly unlikely to land you a gig writing the next Hollywood blockbuster. But, if you’re lucky they can turn up some very interesting opportunities.
