But Franklin has some free tickets he’s giving away and here is how you can be eligible to get one:
In comments, post a question you would want asked to any of the participants on the panels during the event.
Now is your chance to ask something of importance about the craft to screenwriters John August, Craig Mazin, Travis Beacham, Karl Gajdusek, Evan Daugherty, or Edward Ricourt. Or perhaps you have something interesting to ask Franklin, Greg Beal or Matt Dy about screenwriting competitions.
Come up with a great question, post it in comments, and if Franklin likes your question, 5 lucky people will not only win a free ticket to the event, Franklin will make sure your questions are raised at the session.
Deadline: Midnight (Pacific) today. Five more lucky winners.
