I visit there pretty frequently. Itís been around for a number of years now, this is I think their third contest that theyíve hosted (I placed second in their Public Domain contest in the spring).

Itís a really supportive community with an active member base.

I can vouch for the Screenwriters Network too. I entered a short version of my Mermaniac script to Killer Shorts. Fingers crossed. (Though having read a bunch of the shorts here, I don't think I stand a chance.)

Thanks for the input. I'll probably drop one in.

This sounds like it could be cool. I've never entered a competition where I had to pay. May consider this one.

I dropped a rewrite of COLD BLOOD into the contest.

Freaky, because the script finishes on Nov. 15, 2019... the contest deadline and the 60th anniversary of the killings that the script is based on... that's gotta be some kind of first. And, some kind of sign.

I think I should get bonus points for that.

Cue Twilight Zone opening music.  
Good luck, PK. It's a great spooky lil script.

Congrats to Mark Renshaw for Ganglers.

Cold Blood didnít advance. Gotta say, Iím a bit surprised it couldnít even clear the quarters.

Oh well. I like it. Gotta be satisfied with that.
