Playwright Submission Binge #16 starts today

Today marks the start of the 16th online Playwright Submission Binge.  The Binge is an online community of more than 550 playwrights, dedicated to the discussion of marketing of plays and scripts.  It's grown in an extremely supportive group over the years (I started it 8 years ago).  Twice a year, the group gets together for a month long Submission Binge, where we take the challenge of sending out a submission a day (script or query), every day, for 30 days.  After we send out the material, we report back to the group about why, where, and what we sent.  It's a great way to make marketing chores a lot more fun, and also ends  up sharing and exchanging a lot of valuable information on submission opportunities.  (And we don't kick people out if they don't really manage to send out a submission every day.)

I'm going to post it in the Examiner - as a reminder that even artists need to market. And on my blog. It's a deal-breaker.
