The 2019 Write/LA Quarterfinalists

The 2019 Write/LA Quarterfinalists

October 1, 2019 Contest Updates 0

After a mountain of blind reads and careful consideration, our fearless leader Tim Schildberger has selected the Top 50 scripts from this year’s competition. These writers show great dedication to their craft and passion for their subjects.

But before we get to the list, we’d like to thank EVERYONE who entered Write/LA this year. We were honored to read your stories, and you should be incredibly proud of the work you’ve done so far in pursuit of your dream.

Writing, unfortunately, is a career marked by far more rejection than most, and this is just part of the process. Trust us — we’ve been there. (Who are we kidding — we’re still there all the time.)

That said, it’s time to reveal which wonderful writers rose to the top this year. A hearty congratulations to our Top 50, all of whom will receive a substantial discount on Movie Magic Screenwriter 6, 25% off all LiveRead/LA services for one year, and two tickets to our invite-only Grand Prize Live Read this December at Raleigh Studios.
