  1. I do not understand this:

    "Please include the play as part of the body text of the message as well as an attachment
    Please do not send PDF documents"

    So in what format do you want the attachment?

    1. I'm guessing a Word document?

    2. It says the attachment should be WORD or RTF. No PDFs.

  2. When is deadline date??????

  7. Hands down the WIERDEST rules I have EVER encountered!

  8. Do they want us to (1) put our name, email address, telephone at the start of the email, then copy a blind copy of our plays, put that blind copy in the email and then attach a blind copy of our plays? or (2) put our name, telephone, email, on the cover page of our play, say in the upper right-hand side or something, copy our play with that odd cover page and put that in the email and then attach a copy of our plays with that odd cover page?
