To All Members of The Writers Guild of America East:

I am writing to you on behalf of The Collective, a group comprised of over twenty producing members, and all recent graduates of

the William Esper Studio Meisner Training Program. Many of The Collective are members of at

least one, if not all, of the three acting unions and have strong credits

within the theatre, film and television community.

We are seeking to

establish lasting relationships with writers in need of a nurturing and safe

environment to develop their new work (in all mediums) with established

professional actors. At the present

time, we are in the process of putting together a series of 10 minute or short

one-act plays to be produced in April.

We are requesting submissions by no later than February 15th. If you are interested in submitting work to

be considered for this event, please e-mail your submissions (in .pdf format

and with "10 Minute" in the subject line) to thecollective9@gmail.com at your

earliest convenience so that we may consider your project for our series. If you have other projects that you are

interested in submitting for future staged readings, please feel free to send

those as well. Thank you for your time

and we look forward to working with you!
