Thanks to the folks who sent congratulatory emails regarding the news of Militia Slumber Party being chosen for the Houston Special Project, which will be presented the day before the Blackburn prize is awarded in March.
Point of clarification – though this commission does pay, I am NOT eligible for the $20,000 payout for the Blackburn prize. I’m sorry if that wasn’t clear. The Blackburn prize is given out for full-length plays. The Houston Special Project is something extra being done to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the prize.
I am getting paid an honorarium of $500, and that’s a pretty significant amount of money for a 10-minute piece.
So – thank you for your support, and no, I can’t loan you any money.
