I have taken the time to review your feedback and have found your comments and suggested invaluable.

I am taking your suggestions and comments into consideration and heading back to the drawing board. My time is limited and I do not want to rush myself.

Thank you for your incisive feedback on my submission. I especially appreciate the specificity with which you address areas that need improvement, and I can see how revising them will make my resubmission better.

A note from the CEO of WILDsound:

When I officially took over the Writing Festival in May 2013 from the old majority ownership, the new mandate was to showcase as many scripts, novels, plays, poems, and stories as possible. No more finalists or waiting for a reading for anyone who submitted. If your story is ready, we’ll perform it no questions asked. It’s that simple. As you can see since that time, we have showcased over 1000 stories/scripts at our festival and will continue to showcase 1000s more by the end of the decade. SEE HERE recent winning readings.

Our mandate first and foremost for all the submitters is to receive professional feedback from people in your industry, and we have an excellent rotation of talent who read and give you notes on your work. And they’ll tell you what stage your writing piece is at. If it’s not ready, you can re-submit your new draft anytime. If it’s ready, then we’ll make sure thousands of people see your reading online and you will obtain an agent if you do not yet have one.

When your work is ready, it benefits everyone. The festival, the people who approved your work, and of course the writer who wrote the piece. If we feel it is not ready, there is a reason as we try to find as much ready work as possible. Some months you’ll see us performing over 40 reading videos, and no matter what we always perform at least 20 stories/scripts a month at the festival.

We have the platform on our popular network and YouTube channel to showcase many writers using our large database of professional actors always excited to perform your work.

All of the submission fees go to the writer’s feedback, and the winning videos.

Sincerely,
Matthew Toffolo, WILDsound
