WriterDuet is real-time collaborative screenwriting software created by Guy Goldstein.

Full story

WriterDuet is screenwriting software created by Guy Goldstein in 2013 as a fun weekend project for SXSW. The mission is to provide the most efficient, productive, and enjoyable writing experience possible for solo writers, co-writers, and writing teams. WriterDuet has positive testimonials from Christopher Ford the screenwriter of Spider-Man: Homecoming, Andy Bobrow, the writer of Malcolm in the Middle and Community, and Jim Uhls the scriptwriter of Fight Club.

In late 2015, WriterDuet acquired after the defunct screenwriting software shut down due to a severe malfunction. 

In August 2016, Goldstein announced the release of a localized version of WriterDuet in China.

In May 2018, WriterDuet included an automated Bechdel test after a podcast inspired Goldstein. The Bechdel test measures how many female characters there are and whether their dialogue discusses anything other than men; the reverse Bechdel test looks at male characters in the same way.


WriterDuet has nine employees in Austin, TX. Over 100,000 screenwriters collaborate on WriterDuet.


WriterDuet offers free, Plus, Pro, and Premium plans.
