I look for the very best character-based screenplay a writer has to offer. My focus is on a visually charged story, that is original and above all, entertaining.
Remember: I look for a script that shows me the story!
Notification: Finalists Announced April 20th, 2012

An interview with screenwriter Warren Cowell regarding the Red Inkworks Writing Competition.Q: What's the title of the script you entered in this contest, and what's it about?
A: CRACKER JACK, Tail of a Ripper
After inadvertently being swept up into a horse race and winning by ten lengths, JACK is shipped across the ocean to compete against the World's fastest thoroughbreds. The problem is Jack is not a horse. He's a very young moose.
Family animated comedy.
Tag line: Tear it Moose!
A: I was looking for feedback.
I sent a copy to Coverage Ink. in California for analysis. Red Inkworks is Canadian based and I thought their opinions might balance. Larry Myles gave great praise but little feedback.
I have since entered CRACKER JACK into six major contests. Results pending.
A: The results were posted on time and I received an email of congratulations.Q: How long did it take you to write the script? Did you write an outline beforehand? How many drafts did you write?
A: I spend a lot of time writing one script. Years. The first draft came quickly. About a month in 2005 while I was living in Australia and frequenting the track. The 3rd draft won Red Inkworks.Q: What kind of software did you use to write the script, if any? What other kinds of writing software do you use?
A: Final DraftQ: Do you write every day? How many hours per day?
A: I write five days a week for eight to ten hours a day. I write in the morning and at night. I take a long walk, sometimes three hours in the afternoon. Unless I'm writing a horror. Then I run. Or a cartoon. Then I nap.Q: Do you ever get writer's block? If so, how do you deal with that?
A: If a story's not coming, I don't force it. I work on something different. Since I'm writing on speculation, I can let a project sit for years.Q: What's your background? Have you written any other screenplays or television scripts?
A: I'm always writing. In 2007 my horror/comedy placed respectably in a few contests. Before that Alliance Atlantic fancied a sports comedy idea I had, but things didn't work out for me.Q: Do you live in Los Angeles? If not, do you have any plans to move there?
A: I live in Canada. I have no plans to move to Hollywood.Q: What's next? Are you working on a new script?
A: There is always a new script. Scribes must fight the good fight. Alone and in the dark. Like I am right now.
