Sit Down & Start Writing
It's time to write your best script in English
Sofia Writing Challenge is a series of creative writing challenges and courses in English.
Before every course, there's an entry challenge, so only the most motivated writers will get in.
Our next course will be on script writing. ♥
Miloslava Abadzhieva, Short Story Course
I knew from day one that this was a course worth investing my time and money. The information was very helpful and well-structured, the tutor was very competent, the fellow writers were smart and competitive in a good way and this created an environment that made me want to grow. Thanks, guys!

Beat the Entry Challenge
Here's the timeline
How to Structure Your Cover Letter
1 title page + 1 script page
Your cover letter's Title page needs to include the following:
The author's names
Script setting and time
Character(s) with short description
The author's email and phone number
In the form of a script, write a single-page application cover letter on things like why you want to join the course, what you hope to get out of it, where you see yourself now as a writer, where you’d like to be, etc.
It can be a monologue or dialogue, epic or intimate, realist or fantastical. You can be the main character or have other characters talk about you.
It's all up to you, as long as it fits the, we admit, weird cover-letter-script form. You've got only 1 page for the script, so make it count.
Font, character number, etc.
Font: Courier New, size 12
Paragraph settings: default
That'll give you up to 3000 characters with spaces & a very authentic look.
