Diarra McCormick Takes 9th Place
Diarra McCormick entered her first contest, the 2012 Emerging Screenwriter's Competition and won ninth place. McCormick's original tv pilot called "Homebound" was written in graduate school while studying Screenwriting at Loyola Marymount University. The pilot is based on her experience with Hurricane Katrina. McCormick was hesitant to submit the entry because the subject matter seemed outdated, but the judges recognized great talent and awarded McCormick the ninth slot. This is only the beginning for McCormick and she's fired up to do great things!
