The Screenwriter’s Bible‘s 6th edition marks the 20th anniversary of one of the most popular, authoritative, and useful books on screenwriting. A standard by which other screenwriting books are measured, it has sold over 300,000 copies in its twenty-year life. Always up-to-date and reliable, it contains everything that both the budding and working screenwriter need under one cover—five books in one!

The sixth edition is chock-full of new examples, the latest practices, and new material on non-traditional screenplay outlets.
