Subsequently, Arthur Elbakyan became a professional member of the Dramatist Guild of America.

A story of one person
‘Destinies… The years that have passed, the years that are yet to come. Encounters, departures, love, intrigues, betrayals, happy days, and disappointments. There are people standing behind these. Ordinary people just like us. I received an envelope from an unknown address. I found papers in the envelope. They were handwritten. It was a story. A real story of a man. It touched me deeply. Today I want to tell you that story. I will tell it the way it is written here, with no changes.’ – Arthur Elbakyan
