call for submissions
Regular entry: 4/21-7/11/08

Batton down the hatches--the STORM is about to hit! Writers on the Storm Screenplay Competition is back for its third year and is bigger and badder than ever. WOTS is run by #1 independent screenplay analysis service Coverage, Ink -- by writers, for writers. And this year we're pulling out ALL the stops to make WOTS one of the top 5 screenwriting contests.

*** $10,000 CASH GRAND PRIZE ***
Over $20,000 value cash and prizes for our top ten
Top ten screenplays developed by Coverage, Ink
Top Ten loglines submitted to 140+ companies
Every submission receives feedback
$40 entry fee OR...
FREE entry with any Coverage, Ink screenplay analysis

But that's not all. Entries are $40, or submit TWO copies of the same script--which will be evaluated by two different readers--for $75 (only the higher score will count.) Plus WOTS is the ONLY screenplay competition that gives your a second -- or third or fourth -- chance!

Here's how it works: any script submitted to CI for analysis during the contest period is automatically entered into the contest. Scripts that receive a consider with reservations or better for script (roughly top 10%) advance to the quarterfinals. Writer has the option of polishing the script and resubmitting the new draft--theoretically upping you chances--either to CI (as many times as you want) or to WOTS until the end of the contest. No other contest gives you this opportunity!

And our prize package has to be seen to be believed, with sponsors including Writers Boot Camp, Starbucks,, inkTip, David S. Freeman Seminars, Jim Mercurio's Killer Screenwriting, Blake Snyder's Save the Cat!, The Writers Store, Screenwriters Initial Draft Pad, Scriptblaster, Coverage, Ink, Creative Screenwriting, Great American Pitchfest, Alameda Writers Group and more, NO other contest offers such a development-heavy prize package!

"I appreciate how professionally Writers on the Storm was run, the seriousness of their feedback, and the level of involvement of the contest organizer. Great communication between the Contest and participants. My emails were always responded and deadlines well-met... something very rare with screenwriting competitions." -- Juan Sebastian Jacome, 2007 Runner-Up, Algo Por Mi

"I just wanted to thank you for the extensive notes on the AAA Grand Prize winning script Felix the Flyer. I was so impressed that I contacted several writers who have asked me to recommend a coverage service to say you are the tops." -- Chris Canole, AAA winner
