Writers On The Storm was founded with the goal of helping talented writers get their script in front of as many decision makers in the industry as possible. Over 100 top agents, managers and production companies will be reading the winning script and the loglines of the top ten finalists. (A complete list is available on the Writers On The Storm website.)
Each entrant will receive feedback on their script. We know what it's like to send out a script and not hear any response. The feedback will briefly explain why the script did or did not advance.

Writers on the Storm is also the only contest where you could get a second or even third chance. How? If you submit the script to www.coverageink.com, you're automatically entered in the contest. If your script gets a "consider with reservations" or better (appx. top 10%), your script advances to the quarterfinals ("let it ride.") However, we also give you the option to polish your script and resubmit it (paying a $35 entry fee) theoretically bettering your odds. And you can do this as many times as you want during the contest's duration!
