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!

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…
