Here at the Tracking Board, it’s our mission to support and encourage up-and-coming writers who are looking for avenues to showcase their unique voices. We are constantly looking for ways to celebrate and acknowledge the talented and passionate screenwriters who are working their way to the top.
To that end we’re proud to present the inaugural ISA Spotlight.
Table Read My Screenplay is a screenwriting contest sponsored by the International Screenwriters’ Association, The Tracking Board, and Write Your Screenplay. The draw of this contest is that the winning screenplay(s) will be workshopped by an established director and table-read by professional actors. This year, the Grand Prize Winners were flown down to Park City for the 2015 Sundance Film Festival.
We’ve partnered with TRMS and the ISA to bring you the ISA Spotlight, which provides the opportunity for us to highlight the winning screenplays and to introduce you to these talented writers.
