2020 Short Script Contest

“We Pay YOU to Write”

Screenwriters’ Workshop really wants you to write something new and innovative, so this year, we are waiving all entry fees for our short script contest and paying $5 for each member who chooses to enter a script.

Short scripts of all genres are welcomed but they must be on the theme of “For Love or Money.” This can be about a choice between love or money or about sacrificing love for money or money for love or two different people with contrasting views on love and money. Just make it fit. You must be a member of Screenwriters Workshop to enter.

The top five scripts will be acted out at a professionally staged reading that is open to the public. Scripts will be read anonymously and judged by a panel of local judges selected by our board.

Midnight of Sunday, March 15, 2020. Your membership must be paid in full as of that time.
