The goal is to write 100 pages of original scripted material in 30 days – screenplays, stage plays, TV shows, short films, and graphic novels are all welcome. It must begin no earlier than 12:00:01 AM on April 1 and cease no later than 11:59:59 PM on April 30, local time.

There are no entry fees, prizes or short-lists, just the satisfaction of finally getting that first draft down on paper.
