While it seems that the maker/s of NYC have gone on to other exciting projects- there are those of us here who fervently wish you would not abandon this one. We want you back. We need the fix of the creative writing competitions, and are missing the community,
 
I'm sure this is a very time consuming endeavor, but maybe taming down the comps so they go back to the original format with just a first round and a finals. That might be easier to handle as far as judging, and frankly, it is more attractive to this reader than heats that go on for months.  Give it some thought, will you NYC?

I thought I was going insane and was convinced my browser was failing me when nothing new was showing up contest-wise. I signed up for the last one but missed the deadline so I'm doubly sad. REALLY hoping you return, as are the hundreds of others who enjoy participating. Until I can return to my MFA program in screenwriting (illness) I'm motivating myself to write with contests like these. Crossing my fingers…

Thanks, maiaco, I got that. I just wondered if it said anything else, like whether they've sorted out their shoddy admin, or whether they will name the judges before the competition starts, like every other credible writing competition. Because if they don't do those two things, I'm afraid I won't be entering again.

They seek him here, they seek him there, those damned writers seek him everywhere.
