By November 1, 2022November 18th, 2022No Comments

Thank you to all of the incredible writers who entered the WeScreenplay TV Lab this year! Your hard work, talent, and dedication to storytelling shines through in the entries we received.

WeScreenplay believes that the best way for writers to grow is through feedback. That is why WeScreenplay provides free, written feedback with every single competition entry. We are glad to hear from so many of you how helpful the notes were and excited to see WeScreenplay writers are improving all the time!

If you are interested in hearing the next time this lab opens, subscribe for updates here.

We are thrilled to advance entries to the Quarterfinalist round for another read. A huge congratulations to every writer advancing. Stay tuned for the Semifinalist announcement on November 21st!

We also want to acknowledge all of the strong scripts that did not advance. If your script is not on this list, it does not at all mean that our judges didn’t enjoy the read – in fact, we’re confident some of the scripts not advancing will bring their writers success in the very near future. Thank you for entering your script and always keep writing.
