I mentioned in my last blog that Fire Rose Productions is looking for submissions for their 8th Annual Ten Minute Play contest. For those of you who have thought of writing a play, but found the process a little daunting, the 10 min. play format is a good place to start.

In addition to Fire Rose Productions, other places that offer 10 min. play festivals where you can submit your play are:

Happy Writing!
