Tuesday, February 7, Top 10 Screenwriting Competitions So a few of you revealed to me that you are screenwriters -- a shock, I know -- who liked reading about "Breaking In," but want to know more about Screenwriting Competitions. If you win the right one, you get everything an emerging screenwriter desires: But what are the right ones?
I am Piers Anthony, known primarily for my Xanth fantasy series, though I also do serious writing. Updates directly from publishers are welcome, and so are comments about those publishers from those who use them.
I have no agenda other than reasonable clarity, accuracy and relevance. I do not check with publishers before running positive or negative feedback on them; this survey is of the nature of a review, and anonymity of sources is maintained. Tell us who blabbed so we can destroy them.
Who the hell are you to make such judgments anyway?! Clean up your act. I posted spot updates called to my attention, as shown in color.
Routine checking of sites is getting so slow on my dial-up that I have had to stop it, and just update as I hear about things. Thanks to Ara Seferian for vetting the entire list here to point out invalid links.
These have been disabled this month, although we leave the original address for reference. Otherwise, just spot amendments, as shown in color. I received a plea for publishers to get together and standardize their submission guidelines.
Some accept single-spaced documents, some want 1. Some want MS Word. Some want one space after each sentence, others require two spaces. My inclination is to do it my way, which was good enough for traditional publishers for 40 years, or moderately adapted for electronic format, and any electronic publisher who objects can do without my business.
Let the publisher change the format to please itself. Then maybe publishers will start saying "Standardized Format Accepted" and the problem will fade as uncooperative publishers stop receiving submissions. I understand they are now defunct. The site now requires a password for access.
That would be weird for anyone trying to buy and sell books. Material is mostly adult, but no under sex, no animals or killing, but rape, torture, and incest are allowable. A new book is a "featured product" for two weeks, the most recent being 1, the next most recent, 2, and so on.
Sales are said to be small, though. All the books listed with them are done straight; self published books are handled by their authors.
Payment is monthly, within 14 days. The proprietor feels that my prior report of small sales is ignorant, but did not provide informed figures. A very favorable report that they have sales confirmation emails and online stats that match.
It seems that this is not necessarily the case elsewhere. They certainly have an array of hard-core erotica, but this time I could not find information on submissions or terms for writers. I like to verify such things on my updates.
This time I got Google ads, so I guess this publisher has folded. This is a traditional, mainstream, independent publisher that asked to be included in this listing.
I try to cover electronic publishers, but will add others as they come to my attention if they seem to represent a viable market for writers. If your manuscript is truly outstanding, then we will publish your work regardless if you are a published author or not. So this would seem to be a good place to be, if you have a good enough book.
I was not able to learn much from their site, however. They may be out of business. I was informed that their address has been modified, so I have modified it accordingly.An honors graduate in English Literature, John Suetmeier currently works in software quality assurance.
