Hi all! I'm excited to see this new category as many playwrights also write screenplays. I've only just written my first, so while I'm an accomplished playwright, I have a lot to learn about the screenwriting world and would love to hear your advice. I feel like playwrights and screenwriters are related tribes who live on opposite sides of the island. Even the contest world is so different!
Right now my burning question is "If I have a romantic Christmas screenplay (think Hallmark/Lifetime), what genre is that when submitting to a contest?" These are things I don't have to worry about in playwriting!
