Rev up those laptops, desktops and mellontops people, 'cause it's soon time to write, scrawl, scribble and scribe your way to 100 pages in 30 days for the ever popular, international writing event of the year... Script Frenzy 2009!!

As always, Script Frenzy is presented by the same fine crowd who also bring you NaNoWriMo. Despite cleverly coining themselves ' The Worst Scriptwriting Contest Ever ', SF continues to be a huge success, attracting thousands of new and repeat participants of all ages and abilities since its inaugural debut in 2007. And as before, the mission for SF09 challenges all participants to write 100 pages of pretty much anything during the 30 days of April. Writers can chose any type of scripted format, be it screenplays, stage plays, TV shows, short films, comic book scripts, adaptations of novels, or whatever you please.

Younger scribes are encouraged as well to put their keyboards to the test in the Script Frenzy Young Writers Program geared toward elementary, middle and high school students.

T'is all very simple really, as no fees are required and the award is the incredible sense of pride and satisfaction that ensues once you've accomplished that 100 page goal. Those who do make the mark will receive a special winner's certificate and web icon, to boot.

Script Frenzy

Script Frenzy: "o, you're going to write a screenplay. This is awesome. And if you're a little nervous about it, that's awesome too, because it means you're not alone. After all, screenwriting isn't something that we learn in grammar school or do at dinner parties. It feels more like a mysterious dark art practiced by reclusive alchemists who only emerge from their caves for all-too-brief Academy Awards appearances"

Script Frenzy 2009 has launched

What is Script Frenzy? | Script Frenzy: "Script Frenzy is an international writing event in which participants take on the challenge of writing 100 pages of scripted material in the month of April. As part of a donation-funded nonprofit, Script Frenzy charges no fee to participate; there are also no valuable prizes awarded or 'best' scripts singled out. Every writer who completes the goal of 100 pages is victorious and awe-inspiring and will receive a handsome Script Frenzy Winner's Certificate and web icon proclaiming this fact.

Even those who fall short of the word goal will be applauded for making a heroic attempt. Really, you have nothing to lose—except that nagging feeling that there's a script inside you that may never get out."
