Announcing the ‘Leave ‘Em Hooked’ Screenwriters Showcase

Think your script’s first 15 pages can grab an audience? Prove it! Screenwriters Workshop announces our first-ever “Leave ‘Em Hooked” Screenwriters Showcase. All you have to do is submit the first 15 pages of your feature-length screenplay (not the whole script, silly) and our judges will select the five best to be read by professional actors before a live audience. At the end the audience will vote which screenplay they would most like to see and $100 will go to the winner!
