I received an email from Ms. Elisa Favreau from StudioCanal on March 20th and this might be really interesting to many of you.
Are you an aspiring writer? This might be your chance! StudioCanal is looking for a brand new novel written by an unknown, unpublished writer. If you wrote an original, unique, interesting, captivating, well-written novel that’s not available on the interwebs or in print, keep reading. Plagiarism won’t be accepted! The novel must be original and you musn’t be a published writer. StudioCanal wants to encourage new writers. They want to adapt and eventually co-produce the best novel in partnerships with small independent production companies from the UK and Italy. Nobody is looking for the new Twilight!
If you think you have a chance, please submit your full name, place of birth, city of residence, resume, synopsis of your novel (they’ll probably receive many submissions that they’ll need to read a synopsis before reading the entire novel), your major inspirations behind the novel, favourite books and authors, what made you want to be a writer, and, finally, a pdf file containing your novel. By submitting your novel, you give you on rights to it, meaning that they’ll belong to the database of StudioCanal now. You may be asked to sign a confidentiality agreement. Languages accepted are English, French and Italian.
You must be older than 18.
Your deadline is up until June 1st, but, in case this is a success, the deadline can be extended.
The email you have to use is Elisa Favreau favreau.elisa [REMOVETHIS] @ [REMOVETHIS] gmail.com
All legal stuff, payment and detailed info will be then discussed via them. I’m just passing the news forward.
