Hi friends, What should you put in the subject line when you're sending out query letters?

Who in there right mind would ask for money? And for what to read a script?
I have heard a variety of things. Definitely include the script's title.
Sending out script query letters is a legitimate way to get your work noticed. Don't let someone else's previous failure dissuade you.
There are 3 ways you can go w subject headings... 1. If you have a referral to that person, put that in the subject heading. 2. if no referral, then either write the title (which better be awesome & intriguing) or 3. Write something that will make it stand out like "Page finalist comedy script" or something that makes it found like it has buzz.
I wrote a pitch to one of the commissioners at UK's Channel 5 on Monday. Revised it, reread it, rewrote it. It was something I thought to be succinct and comprehensive. I press send. Then I realise - (No Subject). The email's gone straight into his spam bin. Or he saw it and immediately presumed I was clumsy and/ or incompetent. Anyway, I think you should put "Programme Proposal : TITLE"
Lisa Scott - LOL!!
Danny- #3 is a really good idea.
