The Black List, which produces an annual list of the best unproduced screenplays in Hollywood, has formed a partnership with the Writers Guild of America, East.
The partnership will allow guild members to receive a 20% discount to host their work on the new Black List subscription site. Additionally, WGAE and the Black List will launch an online initiative to publicize Guild agreements and services and Guild representatives will contribute to the site’s blog: http://gointothestory.blcklst.com/.
“The Black List makes it possible for screenwriters to get their work read and considered by people in the industry,” Lowell Peterson, WGAE executive director, said in a statement.
“We are proud to support this extension of The Black List concept," Peterson said. "Screenwriters will get solid evaluations of their work and broader access to decision-makers. At the same time, we will continue to get the word out about the Guild’s central role in representing writers.”
