Good news, aspiring and established script writers! Tethered by Letters is launching its first-ever scriptwriting contest! Three times a year, we release F(r)iction, our fine art and literature collection. Starting with issue #5, we’ve used Kickstarter as a way to grow our readership and expand our literary reach into the farthest corners of the world.
A major ingredient to a successful Kickstarter campaign is the video—and that’s where you come in! Submit your script idea today for a chance to gain some serious exposure and a $200 prize.
(Disclaimer: Although we hire a professional film crew to create each video, the cast is usually comprised of TBL staff, none of whom have ever been trained as an actor. You have been warned.)
Deadline: June 1, 2017
Awards: A cash prize of $200. TBL will also use the winning video script in the video for F(r)iction‘s next Kickstarter Campaign!
Submission Fee: FREE!
Submission Guidelines: Video run time must be 3 minutes maximum. Please adhere to standard script format (use of brackets and italics to describe stage directions and setting, 10–12 pt American Typewriter or Courier font, etc.)
