Kristin at the ANA Alliance for Family Entertainment thought the below message would be of interest to the LitCentral Founders' Blog readers:

'I’m reaching out to you on behalf of the ANA Alliance for Family Entertainment (AFE) to let you know about a new national writing contest to find the next great story featuring the modern family. From October 5th – 28th, aspiring writers can submit an original half-hour comedy format script into the Search for America’s Newest Comedy Writer Contest for the opportunity to win $5,000.00 and receive creative guidance and direct input from American film and television producer, John Wells, best known for his role as executive producer of the television series ER, Third Watch and The West Wing among others. Who knows – with a little guidance the script may even be ready for a big pitch!

The AFE is a group of leading national advertisers whose goal is to provide consumers with entertainment options the entire family can watch. In the past, the AFE has put their support behind shows such as Gilmore Girls, Everybody Hates Chris, and Friday Night Lights, and awarded more than 50 scholarships to young screenwriters at leading universities across the country.
