In partnership with Alta Retreats, we’re thrilled to announce the semi-finalists for this unique screenwriting contest for a free trip to our writers’ retreat on the pristine Emerald Coast of Nicaragua — coming up in only two months! Up to 18 writers will be accepted to this program to work with acclaimed screenwriting instructor Jen Grisanti!
Jen has worked with over 800 writers specializing in television, features and novels. Due to her guidance, seventy-five of her clients have staffed as writers on television shows, forty of her clients have sold scripts, and five of those pilots have gone to series! Registrations for this program are still being accepted here.
The below writers have been selected as the top 35 semi-finalists. The grand prize winner will be determined from this list by March 28th, 2017 – announcing very soon!
