After a notoriously long delay, I finally got around to redesigning and republishing my website SPLATworks.

The site, also known as Patterson Communications, has been floating around the ether...well, forever in Internet years, providing resources for playwrights, theatrical professionals, journalists, writers, and photographers. At this point, I've forgotten how many visitors I've had, but in its heyday, we were getting some 5,000 a month. It also has information on my plays, career as a theatrical producer, and photography, plus a write-up on the Portland theater scene. There are still some bugs to be worked out on new version, but if you'd like to take a look, the site is at:

http://www.mindspring.com/~splatterson/

Any site suggestions, comments, etc, are heartily welcome, though please don't tell me this or that button doesn't work or there's a typo on page....'cause I'm working on that--this is definitely the beta design.

For those who have been to the site in the past, the writers, journalists, and photographers resources have been greatly expanded, and included in the playwrights resource section is "An Eclectic Guide to Submissions" which provides a great deal of information on theaters that consider new work, including a thumbnail of what they're seeking and links to their websites (provided they have them).

Thanks. Happy browsing.

Steve

Steve, I am so glad you posted this.  I am also grateful for all the work you've been doing over the years to help your fellow playwrights.  I have your link in our list of links and I've been prowling your website for years. 

As you know, we're in the middle of a submission spree and your update comes as mana from heaven.

Thank you.

 What did you write today?

Thanks, Edd. The "Eclectic Guide..." is the result of several months work perusing Dramatists Sourcebook, the Dramatists Guild Directory, research on the net, and other sources.  I put it together as much as a resource for myself as anyone else, but I'm hoping it'll be a help to other playwrights.  It's weighted towards edgy, more experimental work, because that's the kind of stuff I do, but at least it's there, and here's hoping it can work a little magic for a playwright or two.

Cheers,

Steve
