Hello Everyone,
Just signed on.
I am a new novelist and playwright (one ten-minute play completed). Looking for a way to have it read (or performed).
Retired Federal Employee, attempting the writing life.
Very challenging and rewarding.
Learning as I go.
Moving forward.

Very nice to have you here Gary! Welcome. Take a look around the forum, read some of the plays posted, read the discussions. Activity is minimal. Maybe you can help give us a boost?

Great to have you!

RTurco

Welcome, Gary.

I learned by doing. Still learning. The day learning stops will be the end of time for me. Please Post your 10-minute play here and let us take a look at it.

Hi Edd,
Tried to post my play, but it exceeded the max limit for attachments. Is there a different location I should try?

Gary,

It is usually best to just post the first ten pages.

Again, Welcome.

Best,

Hi, Gary.

What in media res said. Give us a sample and if folks ask for more we'll take it from there. Ten pages usually give 10 minutes of play. If you're still having problems let us know. I'll read it, promise.

Well, I am stumped. I have tried to post my play, or parts of it using Pages, Pdf, Text (which removes all formatting) and Word. None have worked.
any ideas?
Thanks,
Gary
