The Santa Ana River Review seeks dramatic works

web site

Deadline: March 7, 2021


  • Ten-minute play maximum (12 pages or less)
  • Submit .doc or .docx attachment.
  • Since this is print and not production, writers are encouraged to be as creative as they wish—with setting, characters, world, etc. Of course, plays are meant to be seen, but these will be read, so writers should not feel constricted by the small-cast, single-location-set hell of “producible work.”
  • Previously produced plays are welcome; we do not accept previously published plays.
In addition to your submission, please include a cover letter with a brief third-person bio (including your pronouns), social media info, and an email address.

Current and former students of UCR’s MFA program are ineligible to submit unless they are more than a year removed from their affiliation with the program.

We do not accept previously published work. Simultaneous submissions are welcome, but please withdraw if accepted elsewhere.

Please submit work that is proofread and ready for publication upon acceptance. We are student-run on a volunteer basis and do not have the capacity to do developmental edits. With the exception of correcting typos, major edits proposed post-publication may not be honored.

All rights revert to the author upon publication. Please credit Santa Ana River Review in future publications.
