Screenplay Competition 2010...

Last year, on a bit of a whim, I started the Kid In The Front Row Screenwriting Festival. The winner was a wonderful script by Patrick O'Riley, which I will be sharing shortly.

Anyhow, the time is nearly upon us again, for a new competition. Once again, it will have a 5 page limit, and I will give you a few stimuli for the screenplay. And then we will have a short, sharp deadline -- so you'll need to be on your toes.

I wanted to get some awareness out there now; so that as soon as I launch the competition, you writers are ready to get WRITING. The competition allows for no procrastination, no waiting around for inspiration. Instead, it's a mini-version of a deadline you'd get from a studio, or a producer; we need this, NOW, and it needs to include THIS, THIS, and THIS. Just entering and completing something is proof enough that you are a writer. Entering, completing it, and writing something good - proves that you really know what you're doing.

Stick around, it's coming sooner than you think!
