Objective

**A Moviebytes Top Screenplay Contest for 2020**

Now in our third season, Write LA gives a writer the opportunity to fly to LA, stay at The Standard Hollywood, meet with helpful Industry Insiders, hear their entire script read on stage by professional actors in a Los Angeles theater, and be considered for representation.

The winner and finalists have their scripts considered for circulation to managers and agents by our sponsor, Roadmap Writers. The semifinalists receive free feedback from head judge Tim Schildberger. Other prizes include copies of Final Draft 11, screenwriting books from Michael Wiese Productions, and invitations to the Grand Prize Live Read event. We even give a free gift to everyone who enters each year!

Write LA was built by writers, for writers. Show More
