For all you aspiring playwrights out there, the Redwood Writers Club (the Northern California branch of the California Writer's Club, one of the oldest writers' club in the nation), is having their 2nd Annual Playwriting contest. Submit a ten-minute play for a chance to see it produced and performed. It's short, it's fun, and there's nothing like seeing your words come to live on stage. My play "Offing the Witness" was one of 6 selected last year, and I am honored to say that I was asked to be one of the judges this year. Click here for rules and submission guidelines.
