Are you interested in writing horror? With Halloween coming up fast, this is the time of year to start thinking about it – and to help you out, WriteMovies are running an online horror workshop on October 28th!
The submissions to our Horror Award threw all sorts of terrifying ideas at us, and we were seriously impressed (not to mention scared) by what we saw – but there can only be one winner: THE DEVIL’S TIDE by John McCoy!
Submit now! There’s only one week to go until the final deadline of the WriteMovies Horror Award 2020, with great prizes on offer including guaranteed pitching to industry and script development from our industry experts.
Given the current effects of the pandemic on the world, this is the perfect time to be writing horror, which can actually thrive under Covid-19 restrictions in a way that other genres can’t, making use of limited locations, small casts, and unusual concepts – and still deliver something emotionally powerful.
The winner will receive:
- Guaranteed pitching to industry
- Two sets of Development Notes to help take their script to the next level
- Further advice to fine tune their script from our experts
All submissions for the WriteMovies Horror Award 2020 also receive free, automatic entry to our Fall 2020 Screenwriting Contest, with the opportunity to win the Grand Prize of $3500 and many other bonuses (click here)! The winner of last year’s Horror Award, David Axe, was also our Grand Prize winner – enter now to find out if you can follow in his footsteps!
And you can also get free entry to both contests when you buy script feedback from us:
