Script Frenzy 2011

24th March 2011 by Maura McHugh

Fancy a challenge for the month of April?

For the annual Script Frenzy the aim is to write 100 pages of original scripted material in the 30 days of April. (Screenplays, stage plays, TV shows, short films, and graphic novels are all welcome.)

Writers can join the web site, find other writers who are striving toward the same goal and thus encourage each other. Script Frenzy is a donation-funded non-profit and doesn’t charge a fee for participation.

There are also no valuable prizes awarded or “best” scripts singled out. Every writer who completes the goal of 100 pages gains the satisfaction of finishing his or her project within the parameters and on deadline.

So get writing in April!
