Gatekeeper QOTD: Greg Beal (Nicholl Fellowship in Screenwriting)

Q: What’s the best advice you would give to a writer hoping to advance in a competition or make it on The Black List?

GREG: Submit your best work. Prior to uploading your script and paying the entry fee: Read the rules. Make sure you’re submitting an eligible and appropriate script for a particular competition. If you have questions about a competition, shoot an email to its administrators. Don’t trust everything you hear about competitions from online screenwriting forum “experts.”
