...and anyone else! And by 'The Dark' writers I mean anyone who submitted a script for the Feb '10 OWC.

Check out the competition below. Don't know if anyone's heard of it before, some of the submission requirements are a bit fiddly, and it's not free to enter, but thought since many of us have pretty much ideal scripts to submit, it was worth drawing to people's attention:

The 2011 Rod Serling Screenwriting Competition

Entries are now being accepted for the Rod Serling Conference's Short Feature Scriptwriting competition. The conference is scheduled for September 9-10, 2011, at Ithaca College in Ithaca, New York.

The script competition is open to nonproduced or nonoptioned writers only. The deadline for entries is Friday, April 15, 2011.

Serling taught at Ithaca College from 1967 until his death in 1975. Ithaca College is also home to the Rod Serling Archives consisting of television scripts, movie screenplays, stage play scripts, films, published works by Serling, unproduced scripts, and secondary materials.

Eligibility
The script competition is open to non-produced, or non-optioned writers only. Any applicant who has earned money or other consideration as a screenwriter for theatrical films or television, or as a playwright for the legitimate theatre, or for the sale of, or sale of an option to, any original story, treatment, screenplay, play, or teleplay will not be eligible for the competition.

Postmark Deadline
Friday, April 15, 2011

Why can't you, Phil?  It's April 15th, man.  I wanna do this for the same reasons as you... Rod Serling is my role model.  He's the reason I wanted to write movies to begin with.  

We I can fly out for the show, you live close to there anyways, we can have a Guinness and some Manischewitz.  ha!

I WISH I WISH I WISH I had seen this sooner....

Damn! ROD is hands down my fav.

I have at least 4 scripts in my head for that. In fact we were discussing doing a OWC on it at one time.

Hey, I posted this almost a full two months before the deadline. On the board it should have been in.

People don't read what I post, it's their loss.


Guess who's back? Back again?

In America, twice a year, they have 24 hour Twilight zone marithons.

It doesn't get any better.
