At Coverfly, we love great storytelling. Stories have the power to inspire, to enthrall, and to effect positive change in the world. Coverfly was born when the teams behind ScreenCraft and WeScreenplay partnered in 2017 to solve some serious problems they saw with Hollywood’s decentralized and messy screenwriting talent-discovery process. Coverfly’s purpose is to provide centralization for the entertainment industry to discover diverse, talented new voices in screenwriting from all of the best-regarded screenwriting competitions, fellowships, labs, festivals and talent-discovery programs.
In an industry which is becoming increasingly international and inclusive, Coverfly’s mission is to encourage the industry to discover and hire writers from diverse backgrounds and places, looking beyond the insular bubble of Hollywood for writers whose voices reflect under-represented communities and worldviews.
Coverfly has quickly grown to include dozens of the industry’s best screenwriting organizations, each with their own unique readers, evaluation guidelines, judges, administrators, industry partners, and prizes. Organizations use Coverfly to make administration faster, more transparent, and more fair.
Coverfly’s writer-facing dashboard allows writers to securely and transparently access their data on Coverfly’s platform. Writers can also opt to make their projects searchable and discoverable by entertainment industry professionals who are looking for emerging talent.
Today, Coverfly has over 50 carefully curated organizations accepting submissions via Coverfly, and thousands of screenwriters have signed up for the free writer dashboard. Coverfly’s mission is to highlight writers’ competition successes to the entertainment industry and to connect talented emerging writers with script buyers, producers, agents, managers and studio executives.
