Every year I apply. Every year I am rejected. But that is almost everyone. It’s one of those awards that is actually quite useful in that there’s real money at stake – so even though EVERYONE applies for it and almost NO ONE stands a chance – you sort of feel like you have to try anyway. It’s a little futile dance almost every playwright does every year – because they do have to give it to SOMEONE. Someone does have to win it. It’s just never been anyone I know. And I know a lot of playwrights.
But it would be weird if it were someone I knew, right?
Like – what would it be like if you knew the winner of the Nobel prize?
Actually the odds are better of knowing someone with a Nobel as they give out a lot more of those.
You can help me weather the storms of rejection by becoming my patron on Patreon.
