I was contacted by these folks to promote their comedy writing contest. And hey, there's a $5,000 prize! It's not the cool $5 million that the X Factor is offering its winners, but I'd take it. And you probably would, too.
So here are the details:
- First, be aware that the deadline is October 28th, so either get cranking or start digging through your files.
- They are looking for a half-hour comedy script featuring the modern American family.
- The winner will receive creative guidance and direct input from director John Wells, known as the executive producer of ER, The West Wing, Third Watch, Southland, and Shameless.
- Did I mention the prize was for $5k?

And good luck. If you win, come back and share the good news.
By the way, do you enter writing contests, or do you prefer to submit to other venues?
