Francesca Submitted to New Works Festival

Yesterday was the submission deadline for the 2008 New Works Festival at College of the Canyons.

I submitted Scene 1 from my next verse play, Francesca, plus two other short pieces. Francesca is still very much a work in progress. I've written several scenes, and lots of snippets for the second act, but the first scene is the only one I'm happy with at this point.

I should find out by the end of the year if Francesca makes the cut.

If you're interested in reading Act One, Scene 1, it's posted here: Francesca: a play in verse.
