What exactly is this?


An example of my writing...

FOR SATAN - short, horror, 14 pgs (revised draft) - A group of thrill-seekers explore a creepy old house on Halloween night. Think you know this story? Think again.

Sorry, guys, I'm at work right now. For info, check out the 2018 Writers' Tournament board for an indication of what it's like until I get home and can give a more detailed response. Thank you.

Looks like Alex is in. And he's going to write all his scripts in Spanish!

One request: could we ask writers to not comment on their own scripts or their opponents’, at least in the early rounds with pair-matches?

I think a good request would be to keep the topics a bit more generic especially as far as politics go. Early rounds had the White House (not so bad) and the final round had some very specific US legislation and locations. I feel in these instances the US writers definitely have an advantage.

Obviously a non-US writer can research all this stuff but it's time which could be spent developing an idea or writing.

But I'm sure you will run it as you see fit

I'd like to participate as well. Someone has to explain the rules and the criteria of this thing though.

thanks,
