Playscripts’ #PitchNPlay contest: Want a publishing deal & a $1000 advance for your Script Frenzy script?

One of the most frequent questions I get about Script Frenzy boils down to this: OK, maybe I’m willing to go out of my comfort zone and try writing a script but what would I do with it once I finished?

If you’re one of those people who are thinking this, I want you to check out Playscripts #PitchNPlay contest.

All you need to do is write a comedic, PG-13 stage play script of 20 to 40 pages with at least 8 characters based on one of three general pitches.

You can take these basic ideas in whatever direction you want, they’re just starting points. Playscripts will pick their favorite and it’ll not only get a traditional publishing deal… they’ll sweeten the pot with a $1000 advance on future royalties. Not bad for 20 to 40 pages! ;-)

This free to enter contest’s entry date is May 5th, meaning you can write a play during Script Frenzy and still have time to edit and submit it on time for the contest. With the 100 page Screnzy goal, you could write five twenty page scripts (or two 40 page scripts or two 30 page scripts and a 40 pager… you get the idea) on these themes and pick the best one to enter.
