Q: For some 10 years now, I’ve been trying to penetrate the 10 foot thick wall called “unsolicited.” How do I get through it? I have no agent.
A: We can answer your question, but frankly, you may not like what we’re going to say. Unfortunately, that 10 foot thick wall is probably as old as the Great Wall of China and is equally as impenetrable. For those of you who haven’t had the pleasure of submitting a script to an individual, production company, studio or, god forbid, law firm only to have it returned to you with a letter classifying it as an “unsolicited submission,” we can give you a little background.
