ALL WRITE NOW! Screenplay Competition

It's baaaaack!

The rebooted ALL WRITE NOW! screenplay competition is back for a second season. For 2018, we are switching things up and doing a FEATURE competition. After a thorough evaluation period during which you, the entrants, and impartial industry professionals will judge the scripts, we will narrow the entries to a field of five finalists.


Finalists will be announced later in the fall. They will then enter a second evaluation period scored by professional readers. At the Judges discretion there may be additional awards granted. The winning script will be announced later in the fall. The winning script will then be submitted to various industry professionals as well as presented at a table reading brought to you by Stanford actors. Best of luck, writers!

This event is limited to members of Stanford in Entertainment.

$20 submission fee, limit one script per member.

Submission Deadline: September 16th, 2018
