The Inroads Staff would like to congratulate each and every entrant.  Many talk about writing a screenplay or pilot, a small percentage actually sit down and grind it out.


We received many wonderful entries, boiling those down to the results shown here was not an easy task.  Thanks again to all who entered, have a great 2018, and keep on writing!
