The Script-a-thon, a screenwriting marathon and contest, is about to begin. It is run by some of the same folks that run Script Quack.

In addition to the prizes you could potentially win, these smaller contests can be a great way to start to build your writing resume.

I know the folks at the Script-a-thon so I know it’s a legitimate contest where every screenplay will be given a fair shake. So if you have a screenplay and you think it’s pretty good, you might consider entering it.

They are also offering readers of Selling Your Screenplay a nice discount. Just use discount code ‘sellingyourscreenplay’ for $5 off
