Co/Create Details

for Grace Blevins Backstory

CREATIVE PROMPT

Grace Blevins, a distinguished flight officer hailing from a small town in Georgia, stands as a testament to ambition and perseverance in the face of unjust hardship. Despite holding two degrees from MIT and having rapidly ascended the ranks of NASA due to her talents as a flight officer, her journey is marked by a complex relationship with her family. To them, her academic and professional achievements aren't a source of pride but a rejection of their parochial values and lifestyle in rural Georgia.

But somehow, amidst all of this intolerance from her family, Grace established a deep sense of agency to realize her dreams.

HOW IT WORKS

Submission

Review & Selection

Our creative team will evaluate all submissions based on the factors outlined in the submission guidelines, selecting the winning writer and a short list of runner ups who will receive Profit Points for their work.

Feedback & Finalization

The winning writer will work with the creative team to revise their submission and turn it into a fully fleshed out short script detailing Grace’s backstory.

Co/Create Expansion

Once finalized, the script will be used as a prompt for additional Co/Create opportunities that will build off of the backstory concept in the realms of illustrating, acting, music and more, depending on the creative demands of the script.
