some scripts Issue 5


Deadline: December 31, 2021
or until we reach 150 submissions

Submissions for Issue 5 are now open! The theme is open for Issue 5, so send whatever you think will tickle our fancy!

Submissions are open from November 15-December 31, 2021, or until we reach 150 submissions, whichever occurs first.

We are curious to read honest scripts for either the stage, screen, radio, Zoom, webcomics, or other kinds of scripts you may write. We are also encouraging submissions of essays and reflections regarding the changing landscape of theatre, film, and entertainment/media during the outbreak of COVID-19 and even what those industries and processes will look like post-COVID.

Submissions from writers of marginalized identities (BIPOC, LGBTQ+, and women scriptwriters/essay writers) are especially encouraged!

Please read the guidelines carefully below.

To submit to some scripts:
Include a title page in a separate PDF document from the script, detailing your preferred name to be published, email address, a short bio, the title of the piece, and any socials.

Then include your piece as a separate document as a blind copy with no information attached to it. PDF and Word document submissions are okay. Please include necessary trigger warnings within the document itself for the safety of our reading team members. For example, “TW: mention of sexual assault, body horror, homophobic slur”
Compile the title page PDF and blinded copy into an email addressed to submissions@some-scripts.com or somescriptslitmag@gmail.com

Feel free to say hello and introduce yourself in your cover letter! We love getting to know the larger scriptwriting community more and are so happy that some scripts continues to reach more people.

some scripts literary magazine is an annual online publication. All contributors accepted for publication will be asked to “e-sign” a publishing agreement (see the sample copy provided at the end of this webpage). some scripts asks for first North American serial rights (FNASR) to publish online for Issue 4. After that, we ask for archival rights to archive your piece on issuu.com/our website. All rights revert back to you upon publication.

We do accept republished work and, if accepted, will ask you help us with an appropriate acknowledgment of its previous publication. We may ask for proof that it has permission to be reprinted before going ahead with its publication in our magazine.

If your piece is published somewhere else later on, we only request you acknowledge some scripts literary magazine as the publication it originally appeared in.

We absolutely will not accept any work that is racist, sexist, homophobic, transphobic, xenophobic, gratuitously violent, glorifies physical/sexual/emotional assault, or otherwise harmful to a specific group of people.

At this time, we are unable to pay contributors. However, we are campaigning to start making that change. Please see our campaign on Ko-Fi to help us compensate future contributors! Even the price of a coffee helps us along.
