Beat the Entry Challenge

Here's the timeline

How to Structure Your Cover Letter

1 title page + 1 script page

 Title page 

Your cover letter's Title page needs to include the following:

Title

The author's names

Script setting and time

Character(s) with short description

The author's email and phone number

 Script page 

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.
