KINGSPORT — Stephen Woodward of Kingsport is pursuing his dream of selling his screenplay in California this summer, thanks to winning a contest and his nearly lifelong interest in writing and music.

Woodward, an adjunct college instructor, recently won the WriteMovies International Screenwriting Competition No. 31 with his screenplay “Crush,” which he adapted from a novel he wrote for his master’s degree.

The competition, sponsored by WriteMovies.com  , received 1,000 entries worldwide. On top of a cash prize and guaranteed agency representation, WriteMovies will help Woodward development his script further and see that it is pitched for him to the appropriate studios.
