Notice about "On Paper: Playing Post Office"

It has been some months since I have made a post here, and I have not abandoned this blog. It has been a busy and challenging winter for me, what with a lingering respiratory infection and with the excellent problem of lots of work! I do hope to get back to regular postings soon.

This post, however, constitutes an official notice that I will be rescinding my Creative Commons license for my one-act libretto, On Paper: Playing Post Office, effective March 1, 2013. At that time, the work will revert to traditional, all-rights-reserved copyright.

The Creative Commons license for Playing Post Office was initially applied because it was an entry into the English National Opera's Mini-Operas competition, which required submissions to be listed as Creative Commons In-Kind licensees. That competition still has a link for Playing Post Office on its site, but the competition has finished, the winner has been chosen (my piece did not even make the finals of the libretto competition), and I believe that anyone wishing to create a further artistic work using it would have notified me by now.

I will, however, give anyone out there who wishes to use the work under the CC In-Kind license three weeks, until March 1, to notify me at my email address of their effort and preferably to send a copy of that work as an attachment.
