Please submit a one page pitch of your project. We don’t need (or really want) to know every twist and turn of your plot – your description should simply expand on the plot and characters, and an idea of where the story is going. Definitely don’t feel as though you have to use up all of the 1,500 word limit. Also include some comparisons of books or films that will give an idea of what your project is about.
