In partnership with the Sun Valley Film Festival, the Library is excited to support the 2024 High Scribe programs celebrating the craft of screenwriting.
High Scribe allows screenwriters to polish and develop projects, facilitate meaningful connections, and build an active industry community. This comprehensive program dives into storytelling from all angles, with a competition that shines a light on emerging voices, a residency at The Community Library’s Writer-In-Residence program at the historic Ernest and Mary Hemingway House to elevate projects to their highest potential, and the Screenwriters Lab during the festival to expose our community to the world of narrative storytelling firsthand.
The High Scribe Screenwriting Competition selects an emerging writer to benefit from the mentorship of the Film Festival’s vast network of award winning screenwriters and producers. There are three deadlines/costs to apply: November 15 ($50), December 15 ($60), and January 1, 2024 ($70). Submissions are now open. More/apply here.
Residency at the Historic Ernest and Mary Hemingway House
The winner of the High Scribe Competition will be invited to return for a week later in 2024 as Writer-in-Residence at The Community Library’s historic Ernest and Mary Hemingway House, and will participate in a community program. More about the Hemingway House here and the Library’s ongoing Writer-In-Residence program here.
For local writers and reading enthusiasts to connect, get inspired and expand their passion for storytelling. More/sign up here.
