Screenwriters, it’s your turn!

In our continuing effort to help writers jump-start their careers, we are pleased to announce the 2nd Annual Write On! Query Contest, Part 2: Screenplays. The winner in each category—Screenplay and Teleplay—will have their query letter read by Los Angeles literary agent David Boxerbaum of APA. They will also receive a copy of Blake Snyder’s SAVE THE CAT! The Last Story Structure Software You’ll Ever Need.

Screenwriter Tracey Jackson (Lucky Ducks, Confessions of a Shopaholic) will select the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place winners from the Screenplay finalists. Jeanne Veillette Bowerman (co-founder of Scriptchat, a Twitter chat where screenwriters come together to learn) will choose the winners in the Teleplay category.

A query is the letter sent to a literary agent, editor, or publisher, used to promote the project, as well as the writer. For tips on writing a good query, read the Write On! Online Author Q&A with The Query Queen Wendy Burt-Thomas.
