Write LA Names Top 5 Finalists

TV Pilot and Feature screenwriting competition Write LA has revealed its top 5 finalists for the 2021 competition.

These five writers will now have their scripts read and considered for representation by 5 Literary Management companies: Circle of Confusion, Zero Gravity, Fictional Entity, Grandview and Forward.

The finalists also receive a second screenwriting book courtesy of Michael Wiese Productions, and the latest version of Final Draft screenwriting software courtesy of Final Draft.

"I'm excited, tired, and grateful to everyone who entered" says Head Judge and Write LA co-founder Tim Schildberger.

"We focused on selecting scripts with strong, unique and emotionally compelling characters. Each of our finalists have clearly spent a lot of time really fleshing out the people in their stories, and we are thrilled to introduce them to Managers. Our fingers will be tightly crossed."
