Playwright Submission Binge #20 starts today!

Today marks the start of the 20th online Playwright Submission Binge.  The Binge is an online community of more than 650 playwrights, dedicated to the discussion of marketing of plays and scripts.  It's grown into an extremely supportive group over the years (I started it 10 years ago).  Twice a year, the group gets together for a month-long Submission Binge, where we take the challenge of sending out a submission a day (script or query), every day, for 30 days.  After we send out the material, we report back to the group about why, where, and what we sent.  It's a great way to make marketing chores a lot more fun, and also ends up sharing and exchanging a lot of valuable information on submission opportunities.  (Don't worry, we don't kick people out if they don't really manage to send out a submission every day.)

You can check it out here:

For the record, my Binge submission today (Flight) went to the Bloomington Playwrights Project, to their Woodward/Newman Award.  The winner gets $3,000, production and travel funds.  The postmark deadline is today.  (I would have completely missed this if someone on the Binge list hadn't posted about it.) There is a $10 fee that is waived for Dramatists Guild members.
