COMPETITIONS THAT BUILD CAREERS

Our ScreenCraft Development Program builds personalized strategies for writers, bridging the gap from where they are when submitting to getting signed, and even getting staffed.

Our finalists come from various countries, backgrounds, and experience levels, but they all share a gift and passion for storytelling. Check out all of our staffed and signed writers.
