ALWAYS WRITING 4 U
Frequently Asked Questions
You might be wondering...
1. Are all pieces published and readily avalible to ANYONE nationwide?
Yes. Always Writing 4 U is a writing and publishing company supplying services to students and coaches all over the country. Anyone who purchases a piece will receive a hard copy for documentation and archival purposes.
2. All published Always Writing 4 U pieces are available for publication information on www.bookwire.com. The following areas may be searched for authentication: title, author, publisher.
3. PURCHASE ORDERS/ BILLING: If you are a school and need a W9 or would like to use a Purchase Order please e-mail me at email@example.com and I will create an invoice for you. Not a problem!
4. As the author(s) the idea is that all prose and dramatic are interchangable. Dramatic Interpretations have more "performance suggestions" than Prose. They are not published as plays, if you purchase a Dramatic Interpretation and want to use it as Prose you ARE permitted to do so by publication standards. ***Check your state rules on the definition of Prose/Dramatic Interpretation. There are "performance suggestions" within most of the pieces. This is the authors suggestion of performance ideas. They are not scripted stage directions. Plays for example, have stage directions that are written in based on the first production of the play. The suggestions written into our pieces are just performance ideas/ suggestions for the story being told. Poetry is poetry and duos and duets are scripted materials with characters that have specific assigned lines and, therefore, may NOT be used as Prose. Again check with your specific state on their outlined rules. If you would like to know if a piece you are looking at has "performance suggestions" in it please e-mail us and we will check and respons ASAP. If you need documentation of any kind contact us directly at firstname.lastname@example.org and let us now what you need clarification on and we would gladly supply what you need. Your state may not allow "performance suggestions" and if that is the case you must follow the rules stated by your state. Always Writing 4 U can only share it's information with its costumer but can not overrule state rulings.
