    I appreciate the recognition of my latest screenplay (Retirement Road Trip). I have submitted several screenplays to the Miami Screenplay Awards. Each time has been a very rewarding experience. I look forward to submitting additional material in the future. Thanks again!

    While the times have kept us from networking in person - the festival team was terrific in keeping us apprised of what was happening. I'm grateful for the support and recognition my script received, and look forward to connecting again in the future!
