(*UPDATED*) This is a PITCH SESSION for film and TV writers. We'll take up to *10* presenters who want to practice pitching their project in front of a group of fellow writers. Pitches should run *8 MINUTES* or less.

REQUIRED MATERIALS: to participate as a presenter you must submit your project's "One Pager" with logline to [masked] by 11:59pm on OCTOBER 8th. All materials will be emailed to the group on Oct. 9th so everyone has time to read them prior to the meeting.

Keep in mind your pitch is NOT a word for word reading of your One Pager (that's just prep!). So be creative, have fun, and SELL US on YOUR UNIQUE VISION! After your pitch the group will ask questions and provide constructive feedback.

WAITLISTED WRITERS: You can also submit a One Pager by the deadline. If we receive fewer than 10 projects, yours will be automatically added.

WHAT TO INCLUDE IN YOUR ONE PAGER (yes, it is really is 1 page max!):
– Your name
– The title of your script
– Your medium: film, pilot, short, etc.
– The genre of your script
– The logline of your script (1-2 sentences max)
– A few paragraphs about your story, your world, your protagonist and what they must accomplish, what's against them, and what’s at stake.
