The One Scene, One Page Keyword Competition for May, 2013 features the keywords:

Pretzel Horizon Pier

Please take note that this month, the deadline is only five days from today. So I’m looking for some dedicated speed writing here!

General Guidelines
Write a (strictly enforced) ONE page scene, using the three keywords, entertainingly and in context.

Title your submission (hint: clever titles are appreciated).

All genres are welcome.

Do not include your personal details on your PDF submission.

Cleverness Guidelines
Make the keywords count – make them pivotal and entertaining to the story, in other words. Of course it is weird and hard to combine three such disparate words. That is the point!

-Don’t simply list the words, as if you taking an inventory.
-Do try to tie the words together in a clever way.
-Do know that you are up against some very talented entrants – so raise the bar!

Remember – this is Just Effing Entertain Me – the cleverest, most entertaining writer will win. It’s that simple.

Have a look at what is in my opinion, the best One Scene, One Page, Three Keyword winner ever – written by our own Jared Kelly. The keywords were: Plum, Sweater, Volcano.

May 12th, 11:59PM, PST. The winner will be announced on May 14th, 2013.

The winner will receive a FREE entry fee to The Just Effing Entertain Me Screenwriting Competition AND a $25 gift certificate.

Last Month’s Winner Rachel Lefever, wrote the hilarious Cut and Dried using April’s keywords: Lily Sprung Tax.

Congratulations to Rachel and to all entrants for their scripts!
