RUNNERS-UP

CHRISTINA by Maddie

SEE ME by Edward A. Juice


During challenging times, there are always "helpers" to be found that remind us of the kindness of strangers. Write a scene/sequence about a character who experiences an "all is lost moment" who fortuitously receives the help of a stranger. You'll want to write the scene where everything changes for your protagonist, then introduce a secondary character who performs an act of kindness. This is a scene that might take place in the third act of a script and leads to a resolution that restores hope and possibility for the main character. We encourage you to exercise your creative muscles and write (no more than 10 pages) in any genre (drama, comedy, action, horror).


SUBMISSION LIMITS


Your written work cannot exceed 10 pages.

Deadline to submit: April 30, 2020 at 12PM/Noon PT.
