The Quest

Anyone who already follows the Go Into The Story blog will already know about this – and if you’re a screenwriter and you’re not, get following! – but…

Last year, screenwriter, writing teacher and blogger Scott Myers ran an opportunity for newer writers called The Quest. Writers submitted a movie logline they’d like to write, and several were picked for a free six-month online… well, part writing class, and part intensive script development. Across those six months, the script moved from logline to completed first draft, via online teaching, seminars, feedback and strict deadlines.

It now turns out that one of the scripts written during The Quest has landed its writer a manager –  and better yet, Scott will be running The Quest again in a mere few weeks!

Full details at  http://gointothestory.blcklst.com/2013/04/countdown-to-the-quest-initiative-26-days.html .  PLEASE READ THE RULES CAREFULLY. especially the part about not submitting anything until May 20th…

If you’re remotely interested in cracking the Hollywood market, or in intensively developing a movie idea and becoming a better writer in the process, this is an opportunity not to be missed…

  1. Thank you so much for posting about this! I’m definitely going to send in a logline.

  2. Thank you for this, I am going to give it a go.

  3. Hmmmm. I am a bit worried about this: “3. If you write a script I believe has strong marketable potential, I have the right to attach myself as an executive producer.”
    This guy doesn’t really have an impressive resume on imdb.

      Well, I figure Scott has the right to get *something* out of this. He is, after all, giving up a lot of time and energy to do this.
      In the end, it’s up to anyone entering to make up their minds whether they’re happy with the conditions or not…

      • Yes, of course he does. He ‘d be nuts not to. I’m just not really sure what the practical implications are. But I’m going to give it a shot anyway. It would be a miracle if my idea makes it anyway. 🙂
