What others are saying about

A Brand New Year

A Brand New Year is an original concept with a wonderful protagonist!

A Brand New Year takes place in an interesting world with appealing characters … the plot of this script is great and the world really engaging!

A Brand New Year is a delight!

One of the best scripts in this year's competition! There's a welcome note of magical realism. Wonderful imagination at work here.

The writer wasn't just painting by numbers … offers a fresh spin on the romantic comedy in a world not explored before. The reader is surprised time and again!

 I've written for a living, in one way or another, for my entire career.

 It hasn't felt at all like work.
