Current student Shiwani Srivastava’s script Wedding Season recently won second place in the ScreenCraft Comedy Screenplay Contest. (It also advanced into the quarterfinals and semifinals of other contests this year, including Final Draft and WeScreenplay.)
Of her experience in Writers’ Program courses, Shiwani says, “When I first entered Wedding Season into contests, I had pretty disappointing results. But I decided to give it one last shot. I worked on revising it and rethinking what was (and wasn’t) working with two instructors in particular, Michael Barlow and Beverly Gray, who gave me the valuable tools and professional insights I needed to do a serious rewrite and take the script to the next level.”
