Writers, it's that time of year again! The annual Harvardwood Writers Competition is now open for submissions through July 31, 2019.
We're accepting feature screenplays, original TV pilots, and shorts (<30pp), and all writers are eligible to submit their scripts, as long as they are Full Members of Harvardwood. The Harvardwood Writers Competition (HWC) was founded in 2006 with the aim of recognizing superior work by Harvard writers and giving these talented individuals the opportunity to gain industry exposure. View the list of past HWC winners.
