April 2023 Tisch Alumni Peer Script Feedback Exchange Program

April 2023 Tisch Alumni Peer Script Feedback Exchange Program

f you are in the process of developing a script and would like to receive feedback on it from a fellow Tisch alumni, consider participating in the April 2023 Tisch Alumni Peer Script Feedback Exchange Program. 

The program coordinator will pair writers with scripts in similar disciplines to review each other's work on a one-on-one basis. Each writer will have a month to review and provide feedback on the script given to them by the program coordinator. Registration is open now and will run until 11:59 pm E.T. on 3/31/2023. 

This program is open to Tisch alumni world-wide. All information submitted will be kept confidential. If you would like to participate, please get a free ticket for the event and agree to the following guidelines:


Guidelines for the 2023 Tisch Alumni Peer Script Feedback Exchange Program

1. Each writer needs to email a PDF copy of their script in industry standard format to Barry Putt at bmputt@aol.com prior to the start of the program date.

2. The program coordinator (Barry Putt) will pair writers together and distribute the scripts to the assigned participants. (screenplay to screenplay, stage play to stage play, etc.).

(Note: There are more of some types of scripts in the program than others. Every effort will be made to assure that each participant is in at least one pairing. Any script that falls outside of the standard length in their category will be asked to be paired together. This primarily applies to screenplays that are over 120 pages and hour-long dramas that are over 60 pages.)

3. As a participant, you agree to read and provide feedback on the script assigned to you by the last day in the calendar month for the given session of the program. (e.g. The October session begins on October 1. Feedback is due by the end of the day on October 31.)

4. All feedback must be entered onto the official feedback form, which will be sent with the script you are to review. See the form for word-count minimums on feedback. Participants that do not use the form, do not comply with the word-count minimums, or do not complete the required fields on the form will be asked to resubmit their feedback. If a participant chooses not to do so, that participant will no longer be able to be a part of that session and future sessions of the program.

5. Once you have completed your feedback, please email it to the program coordinator (Barry Putt) at bmputt@aol.com.

6. The program coordinator will distribute all feedback at the end of the program session.

(Note: If a participant does not submit feedback on a script, they will no longer be able to participate in the Peer Script Feedback Exchange or be able to present at the NYU/Tisch Alumni Script Critique and Networking Group meetings which are held monthly in New York.)

By participating in this exchange, you attest that you are the author of the script you are submitting and that you have cleared all rights for the script to be reviewed.

By moving forward, you agree to read a minimum of one script and provide thorough, thoughtful, constructive feedback on that script. The program coordinator will provide a feedback template that you are required to use to encourage a certain quantity of feedback on all scripts that are a part of the program. If the form is not filled out completely and/or word counts are not met, you will be asked to revise your feedback. If you do not comply, you will not be able to participate in future sessions of the program. If you'd like to see a copy of the template before registering, please reach out to the program coordinator.

In order to participate, you must complete the Eventbrite registration and send your script to the program coordinator (Barry Putt) at bmputt@aol.com by 11:59 pm E.T. on 4/30/2023.

Participants will have one month to provide feedback on a script. The program coordinator, Barry Putt, will contact participants on 4/1/2023 to begin the program.

NOTE: You have the option of submitting multiple scripts for review and/or receiving feedback from multiple writers on the same script. If this is of interest, please complete a separate Eventbrite registration for each script and/or number of reviews you are seeking to receive on a single script. You will need to review and provide thorough feedback on the same number of scripts that you are seeking feedback on. The same rules apply to submitting/reviewing multiple scripts as they do to reviewing/submitting a single script.
