Having funds to pay for feedback

10. Apart from writing, what else are you passionate about?

acting.

They’ve been great but I feel like they host some contests that feel like scams.

12. What influenced you to enter the festival? What were your feelings on the initial feedback you received?

I thought it’d be a good festival since my script fit the genre and I enjoyed the feedback. It felt good.
