Mary Alice,

Thank you for your time and energy with finding all these opportunities.  It is very much appreciated.  I have benefited from several of them as I am sure many of our members have and will.

I am having a great time posting opportunities I find.  Doing better at not having to ask Edd to fix the posts for me.  This is a wonderful site, I am happy to feel I can contribute something.

anyone know if there's a limit on how many plays one person can submit? I didn't see any restrictions on the website... but I know a lot of competitions limit to one entry per playwright. Thanks.

I just checked. Deadline is Feb 15 2009. You probably have a little time. Google 'The Pen is a Mighty Sword' and you can check the details.
