Welcome, welcome.

Looking out at the weather today, it's on the turn, the Autumn is appraoching fast, that's fall, for many of you. A good time of the year to write.

Quick note on the actual deadline, it's midnight - your local time... so whereever in the world you reside, whether that be midnight Australia, New Zealand, USA, U.K. That's your marker.

... somebody is bound to ask!

Reminder summary for those who skip posts:


We require:

Up to two entries,
Screenplay format of course
submit as pdf by Midnight 31st Oct 2013 to Dpat,
8 pages maximum, on a seasonal Halloween
related theme, very wide remit.
Partial scripts acceptable, i.e. part of
a full length or longer project, submit first 8 pages only...

It is cursed.

You will suffer in agony.

They never heed the warnings.

We've got a new cream for that, the agony part, I mean. The curse still applies, however.
