Screenwriting

The ‘I am a Hack’ contest!

In writing, hack tends to be a dirty word.  It shouldn’t be. In fact, it’s a badge of honor.  Even accomplished screenwriters who have had their work optioned or produced think of themselves as Hacks.

A Hack is a writer who understands how truly difficult it is to write a screenplay. 

A Hack knows that the first draft always sucks, and is only ever a starting point.

A Hack knows there is always room for improvement in their writing.

A Hack hacks away at making their script better.  That is what makes a hack, a Hack.

That’s why we published Screenwriting Tips, You Hack.  In the form of useful tips, it gives you practical advice all aimed at making you a better screenwriter.

With that in mind, participate in the ‘I am a Hack’ contest!  Simply tweet the following, and you will automatically be entered to win $100 worth of Focal Press books:
