New Industry Insider logline has been released!

The latest Industry Insider Screenwriting Contest logline has been released:

A soldier returns from an 18 month deployment and finds that the family home is missing - even the address no longer exists.

This logline comes from WGA-winning and Oscar-nominated screenwriter Randall Wallace (Braveheart).  The contest is sponsored by the Writers Store.  Early deadline is March 31 and final deadline is May 15.

The way the contest works is that you submit the first fifteen pages of a script based on the logline provided.  Genre is up to you - you can write it as comedy, drama, sci-fi, horror or anything else that floats your boat.  Prizes are pretty sweet - the top ten finalists go into a twelve week mentoring program to finish their scripts, then a winner is chosen to take meetings with Wallace and Benderspink.  I can't think of any other program that rewards its winners with that level of face-to-face access.

So get writing!
