Dear Jean,
Thank you for submitting your play to The Collective NY's first Collective10 Ten-Minute Play Festival: 13 For 2013! We received over 300 scripts in a blind submission process, and spent countless hours debating and advocating in the final weeks. Your play was read by a committee of 8 individuals, read aloud to our Permanent Ensemble during our Collective Monday workshop to high praise, and was ultimately chosen as a Top 30 Finalist out of the 300+ plays submitted. Selecting from that pool of exceptional talent was a difficult task tempered by the considerations of a festival program. Ultimately, our decisions came down to creating a balanced evening of theatre, and sadly we will not have a place for your play in this inaugural fest, but know how impressed we were with your script and that we hope to create an opportunity to work together in the future.

Mr. Yeager:
"A-Wire" was one of the twelve plays that advanced to the semifinals of our annual contest! Unfortunately, it was not one of the five finalists which will be given a staged reading this year. But the judges were so impressed with the work that with your permission we will submit it again in next year's competition, with no need for an additional processing fee. Just let us know if this meets with your approval.
