While I would hesitate to place a screenplay or even the idea on the
'Net for fear of cyber-thieves, there is a mailing list devoted to
the discussion of screenplays:  SCRNWRIT.
Info on it and other film/TV lists follows...

 Most discussion lists have two addresses:  (1)  the address where
 messages are sent in order to be forwarded to the list's
 and (2) the address where the software running the list lives,
 where subscription requests and the like may be sent.
 Many discussion lists are run by software called LISTSERV.
 To subscribe to any of these lists, send e-mail to the LISTSERV that
 runs the list.  Please note that the LISTSERV address is slightly
 different from the address of the list itself.
 If the list address is, for example:
 [log in to unmask]
 Then the LISTSERV that runs CINEMA-L's address will be:
 [log in to unmask]
 Thus, to subscribe you would address mail to the LISTSERV's address
 and put the following command in the body of the message (not the
 subject header):
 SUBSCRIBE listname your-name
 Replace "listname" with CINEMA-L or whichever list you're joining
 replace "your-name" with your name as you'd like it to appear on the
 list.  Thus, if I were subscribing to CINEMA-L, I'd send in the
 Now, if you want a big ol' list of lists you can have one
 mailed to you by sending e-mail to any LISTSERV (note:  use the
 address, not a list's like CINEMA-L's) with the following command:
 Send this to, say, [log in to unmask], and you'll get a file
 to you with a one-line description of every BITNET list known to
 man and woman.
 LISTSERV is the most widespread of list server software, but many
 other types are also out there.  The film/TV discussion lists
 above may have different subscription routines, but all work
 similarly:  just send in a subscription command and stand back.
