The next Rouge Wave writing salon is FULL UP. Thank you everybody who is attending, it should be great. Cupcakes for everybody!

The Wave-inatrix would like to take a moment to point out a new service available for those Wavers who write and submit essays, short stories and manuscripts to publishers for consideration. It's a new service called Word Hustler and it looks to be god's gift to humankind. I know when I submit short stories for publication that I spend way more time on the submissions process than writing the story - by far. So this is a neat service - check it out!

The Out-of-Towners

Also, just so you Wavers don't get lazy, the Wave-inatrix is having another Short Scene Competition called The Out-of-Towners. Yes, only those Wavers living outside of the Los Angeles area qualify to submit because the grand prize is a free pass to the Great American Pitch Fest this June 21-22 in Burbank and the last Rouge Waver who won was a local. So we're opening it up a little to those who'd like to come from afar to visit the City of Angels -n- Traffic. This prize is worth three-hundred and fifty clams, Wavers, so please submit your best work. No typos, malaprops or otherwise bad work will be considered. Make it clever, make it fun and win a chance to pitch to over 100 managers and production companies.

Here are the guidelines:

1) Entrants must NOT be from the Southern California area.
2) Write a short scene which includes the words: Lemon, Manhattan and Whine*
3) Any genre - but only one page and one scene.

*in dialogue, in action lines - just make it clever and make it count.

DEADLINE: Wednesday June 4th. Voting will commence on Friday the 6th and the winner will be announced on the 10th. Short time span on this one, I know.

Submit your short scene HERE

Do the three words required have to be dialogue?
