The email sent to me:

Dear NaNoWriMo Author,

You wrote a book with us in November. Or maybe you just recently signed up for NaNoWriMo, and will be bashing out your first NaNo novel this fall. Regardless, you're a person who clearly sees the value in a good month of writerly abandon.

Because of this, I'm here with a proposal. Join me—and 30,000 other overcaffeinated souls—for Script Frenzy.

Script Frenzy is the Office of Letters and Light's springtime writing escapade. Our goal: writing a movie, play, or graphic novel in April. Partnering is encouraged. All kinds of scripts are allowed, including adaptations of your NaNoWriMo novel. The t-shirts are stunning! No experience is necessary! Script Frenzy's Scriptwriting How-To's will teach you everything you need to know. We even have a machine on the Script Frenzy homepage that generates Oscar-ready plots 24 hours a day.

Kids and teens can take part in the Frenzy through the Young Writers Program, which offers boot camps, workbooks, and an energetic community to inspire new scriptwriters. And just as with NaNoWriMo YWP, we provide free curriculum and action-packed scriptwriting kits to all educators bringing the program to their classrooms. Know of a teacher, librarian, or community group leader looking to get kids excited about creative writing? Tell them what we're cooking up this April!

So check out the Script Frenzy site, snag a questionable plot or two from the Plot Machine, and then let's start planning our stories! It's going to be a fantastic month, and we'd love to have you be part of the adventure.

See you in the Frenzy!

Chris

(If this is in the wrong section or shouldn't be here, I apologize. But I think it's right.)

You're in the right place. C:

Interesting - so it's like NaNoWriMo except more open to other writing mediums (scripts, comics, etc) and just 100 pages (vs 50,000 words). I'll make a mention of this in the main page. Thanks for the post!
