Only Hours Left.... turn in your halloween short scene! The prizes just keep getting better: The Great American PitchFest, impressed by the number and quality of our short scene submissions, has donated a a complimentary three month subscription to Storylink's new Pitch Perfect. Writers upload a video pitch onto their website to be viewed by one of the execs who also subscribes (Imagine Enertainment, Original Artists, etc.). It's like a video version of Inktip, and it's just launched.

So if you're feeling saucy, sassy and serendipitous today, sit down, focus, and write up a short scene. The prizes are pretty cool. C'mon, crackle those knuckles and go for it.

As a reminder, here are the parameters:

The Pumpkin, Paradox, Periwinkle Short Scene Competition


Write a one-page scene using the words pumpkin, paradox and periwinkle anywhere in the scene. Make the scene Halloween-themed, any genre. Could be funny, could be terrifying, could be poignant. But you have one page and you must use those three words anywhere within that scene.


PDF or Final Draft is preferred but the Wave-inatrix is a softie at heart and anything short of a crumpled receipt will be reviewed.

Deadline extended:

Please submit your scene HERE by 9pm Pacific Time and on Wednesday, the 31st, I will post the top three finalists and in a Rouge Wave tradition - Rouge Wavers will vote for the winner.

Lots of Prizes!

A $25 gift certificate to a choice of: the Landmark or AMC theaters

A $10 gift certificate to Barnes & Noble or Amazon

A 25% gift certificate toward any Script Whisperer service. (offer expires November 15th)

Michael Hauge's latest book Selling Your Story in 60 Seconds

3 month subscription to Pitch Perfect (as above).
