To Whom It May Concern:
My name is Joe Playwright and I am currently a student at Arizona State University. I am writing in hopes that you will consider my new play Catastrophe for your Festival of Short Plays. Catastrophe, a short play chronicling a young writer’s first attempt to write a musical, has been discussed in a workshop setting at ASU and had a staged reading in spring 2006, but has not yet had a professional production.
At ASU I have been fortunate to have had several workshop productions of shorter works as well as multiple staged readings of my full-length plays. I also recently had a successful production of my one-act The Short at the Guthrie Theatre in Minneapolis.
Along with this letter I have included a resume, two copies of the play, and a bio, as you requested on your website. Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions or need anything else from me. I can be reached at the above address, by phone at 480-806-1234 or via email at email@example.com.
Thank you very much for your time and consideration.
