“My membership has been a tremendous help.” -Tom Parks, Playwright
I have written a play of poems, like “Mama Mia, but with “Immortal Poems of the English Language” [edited by Oscar Williams. 30 from that book and two poems that I saw on “Poems from the Underground” in London]. 3 poems in it are still in copyright. I got permission for one for $50. The other two have never done this before as their emails clearly show, asking me what to charge. So I told them about the $50, but they have not replied, nor said no.
I need an agent who knows what is fair and can negotiate the permissions – and represent me to get venues.
At this point, I have recorded most of them and I am closing in on the end. My goal is either a mixed multi-media and live performance – or just the finished video in theaters.
Thank you for reading this and any direction you can give me
