Clockhouse, the literary journal published in partnership with Goddard College, seeks short dramatic works from emerging and established writers for its 2014 issue.  Dramatic works can be either a standalone piece or a self-contained excerpt from a play or screenplay, and up to 15 pages in length. Deadline is February 1, 2014.  

For mission statement, submission guidelines, and to submit your work visit www.clockhouse.net.

All submissions must:

  • Be original, unpublished work written by the author
  • Follow the industry-standard formatting guidelines appropriate for the genre as well as the applicable guidelines below:

  • Use the spaces provided to tell us more about you and your work:
  • Who are you? (A short bio of no more than 100 words.)
  • How did you hear about Clockhouse?

  • Why this piece in this journal?
  • What’s your hot topic right now?
  • If you could, what would you say over the reader’s shoulder as they read this piece?
  • And, please indicate if your work is under consideration elsewhere. Simultaneous submissions are fine provided that you promptly withdraw your submission via the submission manager if your piece is accepted elsewhere.
