Pineapple Express Competition

Because there have been so many new posts lately - The Wave-inatrix is enfuego - I repeat the most important news of the week - another short scene competition. If you are a new Waver, just FYI, there is never an entry fee.*

All righty, Wavers. It's time, don't you think? Let's get August off to a bang with another short scene competition. And here are the three words you must incorporate into your scene:


If you are an Old Waver, you already know the rules but let me spell it out again:

Submission Guidelines:

Write a one page scene incorporating the words pineapple, express and August. Genre doesn't matter but the words must be in context. Make your scene clever, evocative and what the Wave-inatrix holds most dear - effing entertaining.

Send your one page scene to me as a pdf or fd document.

This competition, as is every competition here on the RW, is FREE.


Saturday, August 9th. The top three finalists will be posted on the Rouge Wave on Monday, August 11th.


A $25 gift certificate to Amazon, Starbucks, AMC Theaters, a charity of your choice or The Script Department.

Submit HERE

*thank you to the Old Waver who reminded me to point out that there is no entry fee. Down the line, we may do something like ask Wavers to donate $5 to enter so that we can, as a group, send donations in to the World Literacy Fund but so far that's just an idea. The Rouge Wave is an egalitarian, free-wheelin', happy place. It's all good. It's all fun. We're all evolving.

Julie, you forgot to mention the most important thing is it's FREE to enter. I think most writers out there assuming there's always a fee associated with competitions, and clearly this is not the case, as I submitted my scene here before.
