There are some great screenwriting programs out there, both free and paid. Final Draft is known to be the Hollywood standard for paid apps, and the do-it-all-in-one-app-for-free phenom Celtx is a must try. It’s free, after all, and it works like a real screenwriting program (if not feeling the most “Mac” like.)
Scribner and Simon & Schuster Digital have released what they are calling their first-ever "enhanced e-book," Rick Perlstein's Nixonland , via Apple's iBookstore application. The enhanced e-book [iTunes link] includes an original interview with the author and 27 historic video segments produced by CBS News embedded alongside the original text, which was first published in hardcover in May 2008. A digital version without the video is also available through Amazon's Kindle Store. "Since the first digital books were published, many have wondered when we would be able to add to the reading experience by exploiting the full capabilities of digital media," Carolyn Reidy, president and CEO of Simon & Schuster observed.
For decades, screen, television, and theater writers have used notecards to hone their craft. SuperNotecard for Scriptwriting offers distinct advantages over traditional script editing programs. In SuperNotecard each scene is a card that you can shuffle and arrange on the screen. Press a key to edit any scene or drag-and-drop to link it to other elements in the script. Create oulines by moving notecards into decks and survey it all from the handy project explorer or via the keyword search function.

And as a former aspiring screenwriter (you could say I’ve been on a five year hiatus), I’m also interested to know how writers might be able to write a screenplay on the iPad. Reading Screenplays on the iPad Lets first agree that PDF is probably the best and most used digital format for screenplays. So what is the best way to read screenplays in PDF format on the iPad?
Yes, We’re Geeking Out Sure, Final Draft has announced that there will be some kind of iPad version of their screenwriting software, and Black Manna has a screenplay program that runs on the iPhone (which theoretically should work on the iPad in a zoomed in “iPhone” manner, but the company says they’ll be releasing an official iPad version soon.) In the mean time, if you have your shiny new iPad, and want to write a screenplay in full on iPad mode…what to do?
There are increasingly more and more apps for administrators and school leaders to tap and tap into on their iPads, iPhones and iPods. Check with your SIS provider as many are now offering mobile apps. Aeries offers and app providing you access to student information and the ability to input data.

Steven Barnes' Free Writing Class! What follows is, in slightly modified form, the complete text of the 9-week writing class I've taught for years at UCLA. To my knowledge it is the only completely free program of its depth and scope available on the WWW. I would suggest that you download it all, and take the lessons one week at a time, writing your butts off. The information is dense and very, very real.
