due to the high volume of plays we receive each year we are unable to write to
individual playwrights to notify them if their play has not been selected.
**We annually receive between 700-900
submissions; by including the text of the play in the body of the email, it
saves play readers time to not have to open attachments. If your play is
selected, the attachments in Word/RTF make it easier for us to then share those
scripts with the creative teams.
