    I was beyond honored that my screenplay "Home of the Brave" won best short script. This is an excellent festival for any aspiring writers to partake in, and their roundtables are a great networking opportunity that allows you to engage with fellow writers from across the country. Will definitely be submitting more scripts down the road!
