The Writers Place is pleased to showcase [with author concurrence] the logline, synopsis, and first ten pages of the winning scripts in both the full-length and teleplay/short competitions - the logline, synopsis, and first ten pages of the winning manuscript in the short story competition - and the winning verse in the poetry competition. These works are for general viewing by both screenwriter and non-screenwriter alike.
