We help place top new writers firmly on the industry’s radar!
The Write Room Women in Media Screenplay Competition 2014 seeks to support and nurture the artistic entertainment literature (screenplays) of women for the benefit of an international and domestic audience. Male writers are also invited to participate but all screenplay entries must EITHER have a female protagonist(s), feature dimensional female character(s) and/or have been either WRITTEN, CO-WRITTEN by a woman.
Our aim is to discover and recognize the brightest and most original voices in storytelling from around the world. We are looking for stories that spotlight women and girls as protagonists, in a positive light, and at all age ranges. We are open to many genres with the exception of explicit sex (i.e. pornographic or stories that use excessive torture against /or of women as a thematic device.)
Along with a $1,000 cash reward, the top winning screenplay will be actively promoted by The Write Room through promotional blasts, social networking platforms, and other media. Other winners will receive free enrollment in our classes (a scholarship value of $600!), along with honorable mentions via social media, our website, and more.
Our contest founder is an American Film Institute Screenwriting Alum, Writers Guild Member and produced director/ screenwriter who loves the written word and has built an organization to help you, the writer.
All The Best and Good Luck!
