Found this in another topic, thought it might be helpful...

If you don't have your own website, you might want to check out www.freewebs.com. You can set up a free account there, and once you've done that, it's really easy to upload files. Then you can copy the link and post it into a new thread in the Script Review subforum.

I don't know why people wouldn't post; you get better as a writer by having your stuff read and understanding what worked and what didn't work. This is my first time in the screenplay challenge, but I competed in the short story challenge and thought the story review was the most fun aspect of the competition.

Part of it depends on rights - for example if I enter the short story challenge I won't post it in the review forum, only because legally that may be "publishing" it, and many literary journals want unpublished work. From what I understand there's a sketchy grey area there regarding internet publishing first. I'd email it around for review, though, if anyone felt like reading it.

I'd be curious to know the nuances of the law, because simply posting a script or story for review does not strike me as having published it. On top of that, 99 percent of the work submitted in these contests, no matter how good, would need to be re-written before appearing in a literary journal or getting the green light by a producer. A week isn't enough time to craft a polished, hole-free story or script.
