"With writing streamers, because of how big and small the community can be...you can't really count on a consistent revenue."
In today's episode, we're chatting with playwright Hayley Haggerty on selling her first play during the pandemic (and watching the performance over Zoom!) and the wonky, winding road of social media. We ponder over how much time should be spent creating our art vs. growing our audience over social media, and how intricately connected the two are.
Hayley also introduces me to the New Play Exchange and the Dramatist's Guild and we mull over the additional resources creatives have at their disposal (but that most of us so rarely use!).
It was such a pleasure getting to talk with Hayley (twice!) and she ultimately convinced me to create a single social media handle everywhere (which I did right after I finished editing this episode bahaha).
