We wanted to make an announcement! We have finally calmed down from NaNoWriMo and regained our normal sleep patterns and we’re looking forward to a nice, long—
SCRIPT FRENZY STARTS IN TWO WEEKS AHHHHH!
That’s right, all you young and (quite literally) restless. Time to buckle down and writewritewrite!
If you’ve never Frenzied before, you’re in for a treat. Script Frenzy is brought to you by the same folks who bust their buns over NaNo each year. While National Novel Writing Month is all about banging out a first draft of your future bestselling novel, Script Frenzy is about writing your kicking movie, television show, stage play, or comic book–all in a month, of course.
We want to support your script-writing-ness, so we’re teaming up with our Script Frenzy friends to bring you a special contest. Post a 300-words-or-fewer summary of your script on Figment (in the biz, they call it a treatment), and you could win a phone consultation with Scott Myers–screenwriter, producer, member of the Black List, and film professor–to talk all about your masterpiece.
Are you new to the wonderful world of scriptwriting? The Young Writers Program of Script Frenzy has you more than covered. They’ve got scriptwriting bootcamps, common script terms and phrases, advice from pros, and scriptwriting software. They’ll do everything but hold the pen or push the keys. That’s still on you.
How to Enter:
1. Read the full rules here.
2. Create an account on Figment.com.
3. Start a new writing of 300 words or fewer.
4. Tag your writing with ScriptFrenzy on the Details tab.
5. Press “Publish Now.”
6. You should receive a pop-up confirmation of your entry, and in about two hours or so, your piece should appear among the submissions.
You have until 11:59 p.m. ET, April 30 to enter your summary. Out of all of the entries (no hearts, guys. No hearts!) the Script Frenzy editorial team will choose ten finalists. The Figment editorial team will then choose the winners! In addition to the grand-prize of a phone consultation with Scott, two honorable mentions will each receive a Figment/Script Frenzy prize package featuring a tote bag, t-shirt, storyboard notebook, hat, pen, and stickers.
Get writing now, and good luck!
