Rachael Carnes writes:
I took my first how-to-write-a-10-minute-play class in Fall of 2016, and quickly caught the bug. As a nascent playwright, I was curious about finding places to submit to, and was grateful to find NYC Playwrights and Nancy's carefully-curated weekly list of production, publication and development opportunities. I can't even count the number of doors that this list serve has opened for me!

I'm grateful for the support that NYC Playwrights provides to writers like me, who live... 3,000 miles from NYC. Here's to ten more years! And thanks.

Thanks for sharing Rachael! For more information about Rachael and her work, check out these resources:
