NYC Playwrights website and FB page have been a great source of submissions info to me as someone living in the UK. I entered the International Thomas Wolfe Playwriting Competition last year with a play called Children of God which I came across on the blog. It was in conjunction with the PlayMakers Repertory Company at the University of North Carolina in Chapel Hill. My play reached the semifinals round. 

Also as another point of interest, I visited New York in February 2018 as my Dad Edward Peel was appearing in a play called Farinelli and the King that starred Mark Rylance. It was performed at the magnificent Belasco Theatre where Houdini did his routines. It was my second visit to New York as in 1998 a company I was working with as a stage manager were invited to be part of an international festival held at the Brooklyn Academy of Music. I had a wonderful time on both trips. 

Best wishes

Congratulations to Benjamin for his success - we're glad NYCPlaywrights was useful.
