Our family of contributors bring you advice on screenplay contests, loglines, flashbacks and more! Check out our full list of contributors and follow them on Twitter too.

The new ScriptXpert Script Search is on! The ScriptXpert Script Search aims to discover new material on behalf of leading Production Companies, Producers and Execs, with the possibility of the selected screenwriter’s script getting optioned and/or purchased and produced. The search begins with The Asylum, which is a motion picture production, financing, and worldwide distribution studio that fully finances and produces 15-25 titles per year. Their credits include Sharknado, Mega Shark vs. Crocosaurus, and Paranormal Entity. If you have a script you feel is a good fit for The Asylum, check out the submission rules for your chance of getting your script optioned! Submissions are open until November 30, 2014.

When I started the new Facebook ScriptMag Writers' Community, I had no idea how quickly people would jump in and start connecting! The group is incredibly supportive, offering advice and starting discussions on all types of topics. Come join the fun!

Now get reading and get writing!

Digital technology has opened up the possibilities for filmmakers to bring their visions onto the screen. But one element of this process has not changed—and that is the key to a successful documentary—knowing how to write one.
