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.
