well, fourth time I’ve applied to New Dramatists and not gotten that happy letter. I really like those guys, and wish I could count myself among them, but not this time, alas. This just after, the day before, I got a rejection from ATL for a 10 min piece. I thought they liked my work, I even got a Heideman nod last year, but apparently they’ve changed the literary staff over and I have to start again. That’s how it is every year with ND; you never get the same group deciding who gets in year to year.
Can’t say I’m that familiar with most of those who *did* get in either… but I’m sure they’re wonderful.
Next year this time, if all goes well – and there’s no way to tell if it will, but – I’ll have more time to work on marketing.
