Question
Is any magzine or newspaper related with screenwriting available in the market?

Answer
I apologize for my tardiness in answering this question.

There are several magazines related to screenwriting available. One is called Screenwriting. Depending upon where you are located, you can visit a well-stocked, preferably international newsstand and you'll see more. There are also writing magazines, indirectly related to screenwriting. You might also try "Written By," the official magazine of the Writers Guild of America West.

You should also peruse resources on the Web. Michael Hauge has a very good website on screenwriting at http://www.storymastery.com/. You can also try Screenwriters Utopia, at http://www.screenwritersutopia.com. Many of these website will lead you to other sites and blogs.

The Poynter website is an excellent resource about writing in general: http://www.poynter.org/

I hope this helps.
