Thanks for sharing Tom!
I don’t know what my playwriting life would be without NYCPlaywrights. I check it every morning. I’m talking Saturday and Sundays, too. I honestly can’t count how many productions have come out of calls I saw posted here. And even if I see a call posted elsewhere, I always cross reference it on NYCPlaywrights. To me, it feels a little more legit if I see it posted here.

Even from Los Angeles, it has helped me make long-lasting connections with theater companies in New York City like The Alternative Theatre Company, Nylon Fusion and Roaring Epiphany Production Company. As well as theater companies in Houston (Theatre Southwest and Cone Man Running Productions) and all over the country.

In this difficult time for playwrights, I’m finding opportunities here that keep me going. Most recently, my play The Rest of the Story, won first place at The Carlow Little Theatre Society’s One-Act Playwriting Competition.

Some highlights from the past ten years thanks to NYCPlaywrights: Twice winning the Las Vegas Little Theatre New Works Competition with my plays Little Black Book and Figments; having plays produced two years in a row at the BoxFest Detroit Festival; attending and having my play, Cocktail Party, win second place audience favorite at The College at Brockport’s Festival of Ten X; having my full-length play, Golden Age, win both the Branch County Community Theatre's Pickering Award and the McKinney Repertory Theatre's New Play Competition within the same year. 

They even promoted my series of free Los Angeles Library readings a few years back.

Happy 10th Anniversary! I look forward to continuing to grow with you.

Congratulations for all your success - glad if we could be helpful!
