Objective

Write/LA is dedicated to helping writers improve their craft so they can find success in the ultra-competitive world of screenwriting. We award three writers of either feature or television projects the opportunity to come to Los Angeles to improve their craft, experience the industry (which means meeting people currently working in it), and have their work celebrated at an exclusive live read.

Why are we different? We’re tired of contests that promise big breaks but don’t deliver. The only way to succeed in this business is mastering your craft. That’s why we focus on helping writers who are on the cusp improve their skills, gain exposure to real people in the industry, and see their words come to life through a one-of-a-kind live read event.

Write/LA Names Grand Prize Winners

Jonathan Dillon's Artificial has been named the Grand Prize Winner of the 2018 Write/LA Screenwriting Competition. The script is about an amnesia-ridden survivor of a pandemic virus who wakes up in a high-tech house being nursed by a mysterious woman. When her secrets begin to unravel, he must do everything he can to get out alive. Other Grand Prize winners include Jeff Patneaude's one-hour pilot Rogues, about a brilliant criminal's quest for vengeance, and Jenna Wycoff's half-hour pilot Vamp, about a recently windowed Latina mom faced with a rare blood cancer, who doubles down on her parental devotion by making a soul-sucking underground arrangement to extend her life, despite some eternal consequences.
