Contests--Beginning November 20, 1998, TNT's Roughcut.com hosts The Screenplay Challenge, a 10-week online round-robin screenwriting project that allows contributors to continue an original screenplay started by Hollywood screenwriter Pen Densham (Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves, Moll Flanders, Backdraft). Each week, a panel of judges will select the best submission and post that chapter on the site. In addition to the opportunity to collaborate with Densham and publish online, each winner will be awarded $100.00 and the chance to win the Grand Prize -- a new laptop computer from which to write his or her next screenplay. Densham will write the final chapter.
