Can You Write a Screenplay in 30 Days?

If you’re a potential screen writer and up for a challenge, Script Frenzy, may have the perfect way to spend next April.

In April, thousands of participants worldwide will attempt to tackle 100 pages of original material in just 30 days. The tight deadline prevents writers from getting bogged down with formatting and the formal rules of scriptwriting.  Script Frenzy invites everyone to bash out screenplays, stage plays, TV shows, short films, or graphic novels.

In order to “win” at Script Frenzy, participants need only sign up and complete the goal of writing 100 pages in April. In return for their efforts, Script Frenzy winners are granted a Script Frenzy Winner’s Certificate, web icon, and eternal bragging rights.

Here at, we’re thinking of participating ourselves and if any of our members take part, we’ll feature them on our website,  so let us know if you are going to take part.
