Following last year's success, Scriptly Writing is back for a second year.

Registration deadline 7 October, 2021

Scriptly Writing is a scriptwriting opportunity from The Literal Challenge - a small social enterprise that brings together a community of writers, wannabe writers and newbies through creative challenges. Over the last few years, we’ve run 13 different challenges, in which people were encouraged to write a new piece of writing every day, that has so far inspired more than 3,500 people from more than 80 countries worldwide to write 70,365 new works.

Do note: We continue to offer all our challenges on a commit-what-you-can basis, so everybody is welcome, and no financial obligation is required.

The way it works is simple: From 10 October, participants will be sent a daily brief and have 36 hours to write a screenplay in response. The idea is to get writing and produce something creative every day. After 14 days, it’s up to participants how they choose to develop any, all, or none of their pieces.
Screenplays can be of any length and in any language.

Registration is now open through the website: and will be open until 7 October.

There are two types of entry:
TIMED ROUTE – You must submit a new and complete piece every day before the 10am deadline.
SIMILE ROUTE - It's like the Timed Route, but you can submit as and when you wish. Perfect for anyone who doesn't like the stress of tight deadlines.

You can find out more information on our website, or get in touch if you have any questions.
