Announcing the Write LA 2021 Semifinalists!
Updated: Sep 16
We are thrilled to announce the 2021 Write LA Semifinalists. These fifteen writers rose to the top of a very crowded field with memorable stories and fascinating characters.
As Semifinalists, these writers will receive a free screenwriting book courtesy of Michael Wiese Productions, a free on-demand webinar courtesy of Script and the Writer's Store, a beautiful eco-friendly notebook courtesy of Decomposition Books, and free written feedback from our Head Judge Tim Schildberger.
And for the fortunate five who make it to the Finalist round, there’s even more in store.
We'd also like to congratulate the writers whose scripts came close to making the top 15, and earned an Honorable Mention.
