The next “Pitch Pit” Screenwriting Competition will be this Friday, April 13, from 6:30 – 8:30 p.m. at Create!, located at 216 W. Gowe Street in the Kent Arts District.

Here’s how it works:

Screenwriter participants will be given a movie title they have never seen before, then given 15 minutes to prepare a one-page script treatment.

This “pitch” is then presented to the “judges” – consisting of all the audience members – who then vote for their favorite one.

The winner receives a small cash prize.

If you feel like being one of the participants – aka “Gladiators” – please email Stephen Hanson at [email protected].
