Call for Co-Writer for African American Football Screenplay

Seeking a co-writer to help work on voice and motivations of African-American characters and family in rural south. Writer should be familiar with the world of athletics - particularly football. I've completed a few drafts of the screenplay and at the suggestion of several close, established producers and directors (and my manager), it was suggested that taking on a co-writer would take this project up a notch to where it needs to be. Project will be pitched upon completion of notes and subsequent drafts. I look forward to hearing from you and seeing some of your work and personal history. Please submit a resume and writing samples. No full scripts.

Please note, if you wait five days, you can get submission info for free. Can't wait? Then you will have to sign up for a fee here a the International Screenwriters Association.
