We're back in the Writers' Room for the Write Now Challenge Webcast: A New Beginning! In this challenge - using the Breakdown Webcast: The First 10 Pages as a guide - you were asked to write (or rewrite) the opening of a feature or pilot using an technique you have not yet tried before. We had over 20 submissions and this super-sized webcast went a full 2 hours! During that time we read entries from members that were Sci-Fi, Supernatural, Drama, Romance, and much more!
A first ever for the Writers' Room! Audrey Knox will critique the logline submissions she finds the most intriguing. Audrey Knox is a TV literary manager at The Cartel - a management and production company. Audrey staffed her client on the series "UPSHAWS" for Netflix. She also co-represents the Showrunner behind Mindy Kaling's "THE SEX LIVES OF COLLEGE GIRLS" on HBO Max.
The Stage 32 Feature Screenwriting Fellowship is accepting applications and part of it requires you to submit you bio. So why not use this month's challenge to hone your bio with the help of your Writers' Room community! Submit your one page (or less) bio.
Using the Breakdown Webcast: Well This is Awkward as your guide, craft your own 3-5 page scene that gets awkward for one (or more) characters. By the end of the scene we should know the relationship between your characters, the source of conflict, the tactics each character uses to get what they want, and the outcome. Is it a victory? A defeat? What are the results and repercussions?
One of the common complaints with scripts is on-the-nose writing. This month, we're challenging you to convey a series of emotions without using the actual words (or synonyms - no cheating!).
In this challenge, members were asked to write one side of a phone conversation. The challenge is to give us the full idea of the story, the conflict, the relationship between the characters, and the ultimate resolution. The key to this exercise is to make the stakes high! Can the writer phrase their character’s dialogue so that the phone call still makes sense - and give us the exposition we need? During this webcast we received a number of fantastic entries that spanned genres, including Rom Com, Thriller, Drama, and Comedy, and more!
