Service Description

Advancing past the first round of many contests and fellowships comes down to how enticing your script's first 10 pages are. If you're curious to see how your script may fare before you send it out, look no further than this Inciting Incident Read service! Mic will read up to your story's inciting incident (or through the first 15 pages -- whichever comes sooner), and provide you with 1 - 3 paragraphs of feedback on your material. Why up to the inciting incident? Typically the inciting incident will occur within the first 10 - 15 pages of a feature, which is why these contests and fellowships ask for writers to submit just their first few pages for round one. If your concept and writing is strong enough to hold the reader's interest, you're likely to advance to the next round. Even if you just want to see how the first 10 - 15 pages of your story read, submit your material to discover what stands out about your script. If you're exploring a new concept* and want feedback on the critical opening pages, Mic can even help you decide what plotlines you may want to focus on as you continue writing! * = If submitting an incomplete script, indicate this in your submission so Mic can provide more targeted feedback. ------ Service duration is the approximate amount of time it takes Mic to read and write 1 - 3 paragraphs of feedback for 15 pages of a script. This is NOT an estimated turnaround time. Once submitted, Mic will read and send notes back to you within 1 week. For rush orders, additional fees apply. Pleas we reach out to Mic ( to discuss.

Cancellation Policy

I will complete your coverage within the time stated on the booking page for the service selected. To guarantee that turnaround time, I must receive your material within 8 hours of this service being booked. Email before booking if you need more time to send your material. For rush orders (to be completed in 1 - 7 days), there is an additional fee that will be based on the length of your material and how quickly you need the coverage. In general, the additional fees will not surpass the cost of the coverage. You may cancel and receive a full refund if you cancel before I start your coverage. Once I have started, you may either receive a partial refund or no refund depending on how far along I am in the process. If I need to extend the amount of time it will take to send your coverage, I will reach out to you asap and we can discuss partial or full refund options.
