Alberta Screenwriters Initiative Award

Not even a raging case of sinusitis can keep a snot-laden chick like me down when there's news to share. Just saw the official posting from the Writers Guild of Alberta that my edgy screenplay, Losing It, has nabbed first place for the Alberta Screenwriters Initiative award.

So very cool! I can't wait to see who I'm matched with for the workshop aspect. The more brains I can freekly pick, the safer YOU are. ;)

Here's a link to the full press release. And the smidge that makes my aching eyes feel almost human again:

This year’s jury had this to say about the winner: “Losing It is a refreshing story with a distinctive writing style that avoids the pitfalls and expected patterns of most teen comedies, to be fresh, quirky and unique in story structure, characters and writing style. The characters are memorable are well-developed and the situations manage to be both comic and affecting.” 


Many congrats to the second and third place scribes, Aaron Langvand and Jarrod Hills. Now let's all go and make some freaking movies. And somebody get me another box of tissue, it's getting messy around here...


  1. Hi there. Congratulations on winning the competition last year. I hope that I'm sitting in your shoes in the next few days with my own entry in the 2013 competition.

    Dave from Calgary.

  2. Thanks, Dave - good luck with your entry!
