Here’s a recommendation that comes straight from one of my consultation clients.
One of the tips I teach to my Get Your Show Off The Ground seminar participants is to submit their plays or musicals to as many contests, festivals, etc. as they can. Because stamping a show a “winner” always makes it look like, well, a winner. And that status means something to agents, producers, theater companies, regardless of when/where/what the contest is. Obviously the Pulitzer holds more weight than The Acclaim Screenwriting Competition, but every little win helps (I won that Acclaim thing once myself – and I still don’t know what that is).
For those of you who have submitted to contests and festivals and more, you know it’s hard to find them all . . .
Enter an entrepreneur who put together a list of hundreds of opps for playwrights for you, to save you time so you can start writing your next show. Like most time savers, it will cost you some bucks, but it does come with a money-back-guarantee, and since this client o’ mine loved it, I thought I’d pass it on to you.
But whether you use the helper or DIY, make sure you submit your stuff. Maybe you’ll win something! Worst case scenario, you won’t . . . which means you’ll be in the same place as when you started . . . which means you might as well give it a whirl.
