MS Word Template for Screenwriters

MS Word Template for Screenwriters published on 5 Comments on MS Word Template for Screenwriters

I have not been able to find a free screenwriting program that wasn’t also trying to sell me its premium version, or a subscription, or that doesn’t require saving my work to the cloud. I suspect a lot of people out there may share my frustration and general “lack of seventy bazillion dollars to spend on a special text formatting program.”

So I made an MS Word Template that does as much of the formatting for screenplays as humanly possible. It’s free. Tips are appreciated but in no way necessary. You can distribute this in any way that you like. I’ll keep it current to the best of my abilities with MS Word as that program evolves. If you have suggestions, comments, problems, or questions, drop ’em in the comments.

Hey, been loving the comics! As a tip, if you’re still looking for a screen play writing tool, ever heard of LaTeX? Open source writing tool, used highly in academia. Used it with different formats, but found one for screen plays ( Really nice to use, definitely weird but worthwhile. Try Miktex for the actual processor ( and TeXstudio ( as the word processor. All opensource, so all free but if you like the programs there’s donation methods for the developers.
