"What a gift. There are the tangibles, of course — people reaching out to inquire about the play after the announcement, the prize money which made an upcoming summer of new play development a lot less financially scary...The intangibles, however, have been profound. Winning the Leah Ryan Prize — my first as a writer — and knowing the intent with which the prize was created has been a powerful nudge to keep going, and to keep going with integrity."
