Congratulations to Jeremy for a vivid and highly original script full of unique visuals and skin-crawling moments. We’re really looking forward to helping develop this further and pitching it to industry.
This is just the first of our results announcements to cap off the year – many more to come over the weeks ahead so watch this space! Congratulations once again to our 2023 Horror Award winner Jeremy D. Thompson.
We’re doing things differently next year – so don’t miss out on our final Grand Prize!
We hope you’ve had a fine Thanksgiving this year, and as ever we’ve much to be grateful for.

We’re not planning another Grand Prize contest to follow this one in any comparable format, so if getting developed and pitched by an accomplished team sounds good to you, then go for it! We’re even throwing in $25 towards any of our services in 2024 to everyone who enters this week – because we just love helping you towards your goals.

Become the next Grand Prize Winner we pitch to the industry
We love working with a wide range of talented writers and taking their work out to the industry – if you’d like us to do the same for you, enter any of our current contests now! The final deadline is November 12th. To introduce you to last year’s Grand Prize Winner Zack Kahn, writer of CURVEBALL, and the work we’ve done with him to ready it for pitching, read on!
Zack Kahn was born in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida and attended NYU Tisch Film School.
He started his career as a writer/director/producer at Nickelodeon and has since written for film, TV and promos with a focus on thriller/horror and comedy. He is also an actor that has appeared in numerous commercials.
Kahn has placed in Writemovies’ contest with 3 previous entries. “Curveball,” a high-concept thriller, is his first Grand Prize win.
Zack says: “Writemovies’ several rounds of development notes have been extremely insightful and helpful in enhancing the script and I’m eager for their team to expose the project to the appropriate eyeballs and ultimately facilitate production at the best possible home for this unique story.”
For your chance to follow in Zack’s footsteps and become the next Grand Prize winner, enter our 2023 Screenwriting Contest here today! Just $59…
Our Development Notes have been getting our winners ready for industry.
Major wins for all writers this month with the WGA and AMPTP reaching a tentative deal expected to end the strike, and meeting many of the WGA’s demands! For a breakdown of the deal, see the WGA’s Summary of the 2023 WGA MBA. And thanks to this, we’re resuming pitching and relishing it!
With the strike coming to a close, we are thrilled to soon resume pitching our winning scripts from the last contest cycle! Polished through a cycle of incisive WriteMovies development notes and exciting rewrites by our wonderful writers, we are ready to cast a wide net in pitching these stories to studios, producers, and financiers. We have been researching a wide variety, from big names to indie powerhouses, to contact with our pitches and strategically crafted one-sheets when the time is right. And that time is near!
Maintaining relationships with our winning writers, our team has offered their analysis and insight on numerous drafts, in order to make these scripts as compelling as they can be and ensure they pop off the page for potential producers. As we reach the climactic pitching preparations for our last contest cycle, we are also ramping up on a new screenwriting contest that is currently accepting submissions. Resuming pitching is an exciting time for all of us and we’d love you to be a part of it too…
Have you written your next (or first!) masterpiece but you’re not sure how to get it off the ground? Need the motivation to finally finish a story you’ve been yearning to tell? Get your script in before the submission window closes! A contest submission guarantees your script is getting out in the world and getting read by a panel of analysts and industry judges. Winners will receive development notes and the full pitching force of WriteMovies.com. For all entrants, we guarantee feedback on your first 10 pages, and you may opt-in for full-on development notes as well. We look forward to reading your stories! (And, hopefully, one day, watching them on the big screen!)
