Curio is a Quarterfinalist in the Emerging Screenwriters Genre Competition!

As we head into the second quarter of 2022, I’m happy to announce that my supernatural procedural Curio is a quarterfinalist again. This is its third time competing and its third placement, so I must be doing something right šŸ˜‰

This is also my third pilot, but the first one that started its life as a pilot rather than a novel that I wrote previously and then adapted. (I had planned to write it as a novel first but hadn’t gotten around to it before I discovered screenwriting.) I think this is probably working in its favor because it has a very recognizable structure, and acts as a more self-contained episode than the pilots for either No Rest for the Wicked or Riftmaker. It’s a lot easier to predict what you’d get from a whole episodic Curio series than the other two, which are decidedly serialized. Good info to file away for the future…

I’ll find out about the semifinals for this one on April 14, and the quarterfinals and top 100s for some other competitions around the same time. Here’s to hoping!
