These essays are based on my now almost twenty year experience as a reader and judge for numerous competitions, as well as a provider of one-on-one personal consultation. During that time, I have come to notice that writers often seem to make the same sorts of mistakes over and over and over…and over again. The essays are not rules to live by. The essays are just a way to give you, the author, more of an idea as to what you may need to do to make it up to that next level. For more info, Click Here
New Media Film Festival Honoring Stories Worth Telling - All Ages, All Cultures, All Media. New Media Film Festival works hard to produce a festival that highlights and honors the hard working and uprising content creators in the New Media Industry. It is a unique festival that diligently works to find opportunities, including distribution for almost all of the submitted content, not just those programmed. Accepts all stories in text format (books, event scripts, reality etc.)
