We are proud to announce that our very own Shy Town Girl author, Katie Leimkuehler, recently qualified for the second round of the 2013 Fresh Voices Pitch Contest! Based out of Hollywood, the Fresh Voice Pitch Contest is offered by group film professionals and provides up and coming talent with the opportunity to have their written ideas and stories cinematically told.
Author of the second Shy Town Girls novel featuring the feisty Ivy Westin, Katie has the chance to turn the Shy Town Girls pitch into a screenplay. All submissions are judged on criteria ranging from theme to marketability to conflict. The Grand Prize Winner will earn over $5,000 in prizes, consult with professionals on the screenplay and pitch the project to an experienced producer.
The 2013 Fresh Pitch Contest finalist and winners will be announced August 1. Here’s to Katie and the chance to see our favorite twenty-something single gals stumble through work, life and dating on the silver screen!
