WriteMovies.com Holds L.A. Reception Celebrating Winners Of International Writing Contest
WriteMovies.com is holding a reception to celebrate the winners of its international writing contest, on October 8, 2002 at The Lot, Warner Hollywood Studios. Many international writers and industry figures will attend with Niki Marvin—producer of The Shawshank Redemption—as guest of honor.
Jeff Dixon will receive a first prize of $2000 for his winning script Dermis, a horror thriller staged in the eerie world of tattoo collectors. Second place is Jimmy Shea for The Chat Room, another thriller with cybersex as the backdrop. Third place goes to German novelist Cornelia Kempf for her superb Die Gaerten Von Damaskus (The Gardens of Damascus), a dramatic love story about an enslaved German nobleman and an Arabian Princess set during the Crusades.
