I’m really pleased to be offering a prize of a free script report in the Page Turner Awards.
The Page Turner award is a US scriptwriting and novel writing prize which has one mission — to change as many writers’ lives as possible. That’s getting new unpublished writers discovered, helping published authors get their writing recognized and celebrated, so they can find new reading audiences and giving screenwriters the chance to have their scripts placed in front of film professionals.
The main judge of the Page Turner Awards is Paul Michael Glaser – an actor in Fiddler on The Roof and more recently in the hit series Ray Donovan, Producer of Double Impact with JCVD, and the director of one of my favourite Stephen King adaptations – The Running Man, but to blokes of a certain age (like me) he’ll always be remembered as Det. Dave Starsky in the original and still unmatched Starsky and Hutch TV series. He’s responsible for a lot of sliding on car bonnets (or hoods in the US). But he’s a great guy, and a big advocate of helping new writing talent.
The 2022 Page Turner Awards prize fund is over £18K with valuable prizes for authors and writers. So, with that sort of cash and kudos on offer its worth having a look at the awards – you can find details on how to enter here: Enter In Two Steps | Page Turner Awards
Good luck to anyone who enters. Let me know how you get on.
