Writing a follow-up letter
Trinity Rep in Providence, R.I., requested the full script of “Lessons from Moonshine” based on the query I sent them last July. They asked for the full script in September, and I sent it right away.
I know literary departments are swamped, and I don’t want to bother them. But I included an SASP, which after nine months I haven’t gotten back. So — I figure it’s okay to send a quick follow-up letter.

Re: full script “Lessons from Moonshine” (formerly “In the Spirits of Our God”)
Last September, you sent me a request for the full script of my play “Lessons from Moonshine” (formerly “In the Spirits of Our God”). I know literary departments are usually swamped, but since I didn’t get back the SASP I sent, I’m writing to make sure you got it.
If you didn’t get the full script, and you would still like to see it, please let me know and I will send it again. You can reach me at (e-mail address), (phone number), or at the address above.
What do you think?
Is the letter courteous and polite? Does it quickly explain why I’m writing without wasting their time?
