An Idea...

Hi Students!

Many of you are aspiring screenwriters, novelists, and storytellers. The great thing about this idea is that you don't have to have done any of those accomplishments yet to win! This is a Monthly Logline Contest, with only a $5 entry fee.

*Ultimate Logline Contest
Monthly. $5 an entry. Add “Award-Winning Writer” to your resume in the easiest and cheapest way possible.

Learning to write a logline is an incredibly important and criminally underrated skill. It is the key to how you get professionals to take their valuable time to read your amateur spec script. 

How do you write a logline the industry wants? 

Here is an analysis of the ten loglines from the 132 spec scripts that sold in 2012.

Here is Scriptshadow's advice: 

Remember to keep it simple. James Cameron's pitch for TITANIC was "ROMEO AND JULIET on the TITANIC." Yes, he was James Freakin' Cameron...but don't you already get what the movie was about and see the poster? Bingo.

* I'm not affiliated with the contest, I've never entered it, and I don't know its reputation. But it seems like a fun, easy way for you to enter the confusing world of screenwriting contests.
