Objective

Query letters are the backbone to screenwriting success, and our site is a testament to that. Unless you have a direct contact with a major studio or represented by a top agency, a query letter is needed to make an introduction.

Screenwriting Staffing is an online community that connects screenwriters with industry buyers and producers. With over 275+ success stories, our site has proven that query letters are effective.

When industry professionals post with us, they request a query letter first. A producer will not read a screenplay from someone they do not know. They want to make sure that your story matches their needs. A well-written query letter says the following about you:

  • You can tell your story in a short amount of time. Show More
