    Good morning Sandra,

    I attended your live webinar through Carolinas SCBWI this past weekend and ABSOLUTELY LOVED IT.
    I’m fully committed to breaking into the Ed market and have been beyond inspired by the info and enthusiasm both you and Mike shared.

    I’ve been putting together my submission packets and have run into a brick wall that I hope you can help me with.
    I’m interested in Readers Theater with Benchmark Education, however I’ve searched, called the company waiting on a reply in order to find the contact information necessary to submit to.

    Any advice or information you could share would be helpful.

    Thank you so much.
    Have a great week.

    Best regards,
    Sheila S

      Hi Shelia,
      Thank you for your kind words. Mike and I are delighted that you are inspired and taking swift action on your plans. My suggestion would be to use a general greeting such as “Editor, Reader’s Theater Skits” (sent to a general gmail or – believe it or not – to a mailing address with hard copy submissions enclosures). As you can imagine, many of the editors are in between closing out one season and planning forward for a new one, which we all hope holds more promise in terms of routine opportunity. In other words, this might be a waiting game for a bit of time…so do what you can to inch forward on all fronts. Speaking of which, also consider Teacher Created Materials, another company that has extensive collections of Reader’s Theater skits. I hope this helps.
