This is an interesting post regarding this blog from the Hollins Playwright Lab's Facebook page:

Worth a read. I wish every playwright had to spend a month or two in a literary office with an open submission policy before being allowed to submit their work. It is so instructive to read a large volume of submissions, as a matter of fact, that one of my favorite exercises is to plunck a box of actual submissions down on the table in class and spend (literally) two hours making the students read them--rotating the scripts clockwise every five minutes. You've never seen a group of playwrights so quickly get sympathy for literary departments and intolerant of bad structure and formatting (especially in their own work).
