Contest Screenwriting Studio

Find Your Path to a Better Story

ASK YOURSELF

ARE YOU CONTEST READY?

Does your script convey your vision to the contest judges?

Have you found the art and writer’s voice in your story?

Have you chosen the best contest for your unique story?

These are hard questions to answer without submitting your script to a contest and waiting months for feedback.

Traditional coverage can help, but it may not go deep enough to help you truly elevate your script.

 

Great screenwriting books and classes are key, but rarely cover the unique nature of contest judging.

 

Lack of focused guidance can leave you unsure of how you stack up against your competition.
