    You can register a screenplay with them, but the minute someone buys it, you have to become a guild member.

    From the WGAw (the "w" means west of the Mississippi) FAQ:

    "Our preferred formats are ASCII text, PDF (Adobe Acrobat), Microsoft Word files, and Final Draft format files. The ASCII and Microsoft Word formats are widely used and will likely be accessible indefinitely in the future. The Final Draft format is well known in the industry, and there is a free and widely available reader for these files. Also, the makers of Final Draft have contracted with a third-party software escrow company to assure that versions of their software will be available in the future, providing you assurance that your Final Draft format file will be accessible in the future."

    Personally, I use Movie Magic Screenwriter, because I think it has a more intuitive interface.
