NwSG/SAG-AFTRA Script Showcase

* * Professional actors bring your characters to life in a staged reading * *
Date: January 7, 2018
Details: TBD

Your best screenplay pages to be performed by professional actors under the guidance of experienced directors.

All NwSG members are invited to submit a 10-page excerpt, or a short no longer than 10 pages, for consideration. Priority will be given to works by minority writers, that express diverse perspectives, or are by members who haven’t been showcased previously. If you are a minority and your work doesn’t reflect that, please make that clear in a note with your submission.

Submissions can include a “story so far” intro of up to 200 words.

Send your submission to Staci(at)HeroLabs(dot)net
