Pitch contest (sort of)

For all those aspiring screenwriters, has a currently open pitch competition.

I've looked over the entries so far, and many of them are hitting those 'screenwriting peeves' that I mentioned ages and ages ago, particularly the 'writing about oneself as either a struggling or ridiculously successful writer'.

Will they ever learn?

Probably not - but that's good news for you! It means out of those pitches (there were about 120 when I looked) two of them didn't sound completely awful. Of those two, one knew how to spell.

Makes the competition look a whole lot less competitive, doesn't it?

Remember - you're not actually competing against other people. I'll explain that one later, as it needs a blog of its own.
