My First Writing Sale

So I mentioned before that my essay on the Living Theatre’s 2007 production of The Brig was to be published in PAJ: A Journal of Performance and Art. Yesterday, I received my copy and it was rather cool to see myself listed in the contents:

Firstsale-1

What I did not expect, however, was that I was actually paid for this essay. Not much, only $75, but still quite respectable on a per word basis and, because it was completely unexpected, a rather nice surprise.

And that makes this my first actual sale of my writing.

Neat.

  1. Peter: congratulations! I’ll stop by the URI library first of next week to see if I can take a look at it! Don’t spend all your earnings in one place! Love, Dad
