  • CS -- Writer Beware

    Anyone else read it this month? QUESTION: What contest was it that the mystery writer entered? If we're going to beware -- shouldn't we know the contest name. Anyone out there got the skinny?

    You know what? I felt that same way. I guess they don't want to open themselves up to a legal thing maybe. It did kind of weaken the whole article.

      Out the agency!

      Exactly. And yet I do understand the point of keeping identities secret. Revealing the contest = revealing the writer. And the writer probably doesn't want to be seen as a complainer or anything other than a writer. But that means this contest will continue to sucker people. Perhaps they could out the agency at least.

        Yeah, you would think they would have done something. I guess just pay attention to the gist of the story: RESEARCH those contests.

        Really though, I would only stick with the bigger, better known ones anyway. Nicholl, Chester, Austion, Scriptalooza, Disney, and there may be a couple more.

        The rest are either not big enough, or never will be.

          Just read the article this evening. And yes, a shame they didn't name names. It's like it turns into a urban myth of screenwriting. Don't send out the screenplay to unknown competitions, 'cause it just might be sent out again... Without your name on the cover...

          Or... I DON'T KNOW WHAT MY SCRIPT DID LAST SUMMER
