Finding Original Screenplay Books: Where to Look

Finding original screenplay books can be a bit of a challenge, but there are several places to look for them. Here are a few places where you can find original screenplay books:

  1. Bookstores: Many bookstores have a section dedicated to screenplay books, where you can find both physical and digital copies.

  2. Online retailers: Websites like Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and Books-A-Million have a wide selection of screenplay books, both in physical and digital format.

  3. Screenwriting/filmmaking supply stores: Stores that cater to screenwriters and filmmakers, like The Writer's Store or The Film Connection, often carry a wide selection of screenplay books.

  4. Libraries: Many libraries have a selection of screenplay books, both in physical and digital format, that can be borrowed for free.

  5. Script libraries: There are online script libraries, like the Internet Movie Script Database (IMSDb) or SimplyScripts, which have a vast collection of screenplays available for free.

  6. Screenplay competitions: Some screenplay competitions, like the Nicholl Fellowship or the Austin Film Festival, have a collection of winning screenplays available for purchase.

  7. Publishers: Many publishers, such as Faber & Faber, Taschen, or Newmarket Press, have a list of screenplay books and a preview of their upcoming releases that can be found on their websites.

By looking in these places, you'll be able to find a wide selection of original screenplay books to choose from. Remember to also check for diverse and underrepresented voices, as the film industry is still lagging behind in this aspect.
