Oh Snap! I’m a DOUBLE Quarterfinalist in the 2022 Screencraft TV Pilot Competition

I’m thrilled to announce that I got word last night that BOTH Curio and Riftmaker advanced in the competition.

Curio is a Quarterfinalist!

This is the first time this script has competed, and I’m thrilled to announce it has advanced to the quarterfinals of the WeScreenplay TV competition!

One Year Down: What I’ve Accomplished So Far as an Aspiring Screenwriter

I don’t think anyone would be surprised to hear that spring 2020 was not a great time for me because it wasn’t a great time for pretty much anyone.

With all the other stuff going on and interviews to post, I totally forgot to post about my progress in the pilot competition. On Dec 9, I found out that I was one of just 50 finalists overall in the competition, which started with about 4800 entries. Woohoo!!! So now…

Creating My Own Screenwriting Boot Camp: MasterClass Courses

Originally posted on Phoebe Darqueling:
There are a few online degrees and intensive workshops for aspiring screenwriters out there. But, frankly, I’ve been a self-directed and motivated student of storytelling already for six years. It just doesn’t seem like it is worth the cost wade through the basics again. However, there is certainly more to…
