There is no festival like this!

Mainly what this contest does is give exposure to the writer. They will be able to obtain a solid agent, plus get notice by producers looking for writers like yourself. NOTE: The writer will always own 100% rights to their story. The only thing we do is help the writer. Either with notes on their next draft, or gain exposure by having their story showcased at our festival.

“Cotton Can” is written by 3 sisters aged 5, 6, and 8.

The girls wrote “Cotton Can” in recognition of Learning Disabilities Week 2015″

They concluded it’s about how you see things. Just because we learn differently, doesn’t mean we can’t. It’s about finding a way… and believing!

Cotton can. You can. Believe. In yourself.

Narrated by Becky Shrimpton
