Script Assessment 

Reader Service

The NZWG Script Assessment / Reader Service is to provide prompt, professional, affordable and constructive script assessment for scriptwriters developing their own projects. Feedback is vital for the development of a script and worth investing in.


This is feedback by professional script assessors, for writers. This is strictly for scripts to which the writer retains the rights.

We have a strong team of experienced assessors who are all keen and ready for your scripts. These assessors remain anonymous, to ensure that no direct correspondence is entered into. The NZWG member rates are well below industry standard rates. We are lucky that assessors are willing to work for this fee in support of the NZWG to advance the professional standards of writers.

Cost per script - NZWG member:

Long Form - up to 130 pages : $450 (plus. GST)

Short Form (short film or treatment) - up to 25 pages : $300 (plus. GST)

Cost per script - NZWG non-member:

Long Form - up to 130 pages : $800 (plus. GST)

Short Form (short film or treatment) - up to 25 pages : $450 (plus. GST)

Turn-a-round time

We aim for a maximum turn-around of four weeks from date of payment or submission of material (whichever is later). The NZWG will communicate where a delay locating a suitable assessor is anticipated. The writer may withdraw the assessment request and receive a refund up until the time the script is passed on to the assessor. Note that once you receive your feedback, no further correspondence with the assessor is to be entered into. The assessment you receive will be anonymous.
