Success Stories

Our past users speak better than we can

Join the best writers worldwide.

Below are just a few of their stories.

In just 6 years The Launch Pad Competition went from being the newcomer on the block to the most successful writing competition in the world. With an emphasis on helping start careers, and not simply giving a writer a few dollars and putting their names on a list, we’ve seen our writers land with some of the largest representation in town, sell their projects to several elite outlets, and land on every major annual “best of” list since our launch. Now with over 403 writers signed, 134 projects set up, and more than two dozen staffed on shows, we’re incredibly proud of the work our team has done, but we’re even more so with the writers we’ve had a chance to work with to make their dreams become realities.
