Sell your Screenplay and Save the World’s Trees

At least, that’s what GreenWriter.org is hoping that you’ll be able to do. Every year, according to this new organization, screenwriters print out 180 million sheets of paper in their efforts to sell their stories.

Within six months of its web site launch, Green Writer hopes to save half that amount, or 90 million pages, by providing a place for screenwriters to freely upload their work in various formats.

Daniel Riser, founder of GreenWriter.org, spoke to triplepundit – people planet profit, he said: “I had just finished a screenplay that took me two years to complete. Rather than print it out, I wanted to find an online venue. I was shocked to find nothing but online scams charging $60 to $1500 to upload a PDF with the “promise” that a few producers might read it. Immediately, I shelved my screenplay and started developing my own website. As my research progressed I discovered about 180 million sheets of paper were printed every year by the screenwriting industry alone. That’s when Greenwriter really found its voice.”

An excellent resource for writers looking to get their scripts to the right people — without all the printing and mailing hassles.

So for all the future screenwriters out there, you now know what to do!
