Screenwriter Jessica Bendinger (Bring it On) is going interactive to promote the November 24 release of her Simon & Schuster novel The Seven Rays. She's inviting aspiring screenwriters to adapt any portion of the book into a 2-5 page screenplay in order to win an in-depth consultation with her.

One catch: the contest is also a promo for Final Draft, so the writers have to use that software (a free demo is available for download). The contest opened on November 15, 2009 and closes on February 15, 2010 at 12:00 am PST. The Grand Prize winner gets a one-on-one script consultation for their screenplay with Bendinger. Five second-place winners can pitch an original piece to a producer, agent, development exec and Bendinger via iChat or Skype. And ten third-place runners-up win a copy of Final Draft scriptwriting software. The contest rules are here.
