Drama in the Time of Covid—An Anthology

web site

Deadline: August 1, 2021

We seek an anthology to showcase works by playwrights examining Covid-19 in all its permutations. We are looking for short plays and monologues from diverse playwrights worldwide who have something to say about the current pandemic. The anthology will be published by FlowerSong Press in Spring 2022.

To submit, send new and un-produced scripts as attachments of no more than 25 pages to covidanthology@gmail.com by August 1, 2021.
 
Include a 50-75 word 3rd-person bio in the body of your email. 

Plays that have had readings or workshops are acceptable. 

Format scripts as Microsoft Word or PDF documents only, and include a title page with contact information. 

Simultaneous submissions are okay but please notify us asap if accepted elsewhere. All accepted playwrights will receive a copy of the anthology upon publication.

Close to 8 million people worldwide have contracted Covid-19. 1 million have died. In the United States alone, over 200,000 have succumbed to this deadly virus, and counting. With no end to the pandemic in sight, the "new normal" involves lockdowns, social distancing, face masks, fear, and political strife.

More than any other creative genre, drama has suffered the hardest during the Covid-19 pandemic. With the closure of theaters worldwide as in plagues of the past, playhouses have been forced to find new ways to reproduce the magic of live theater by going virtual. For smaller venues lacking the resources, many have closed temporarily or permanently shuttered. For playwrights, this reality translates to fewer opportunities to showcase their work, and the virus places in peril the future of live theater and new works.

some scripts Submission Guidelines

web site

some scripts literary magazine is now accepting submissions for Issue 4: “Outbreak”!

This can refer to COVID-19, fascism, or anything that comes to mind: an outbreak of inspiration, an outbreak of solidarity, an outbreak of song. You are free to interpret “Outbreak” as you see fit. We are curious to read honest scripts for either Zoom, the radio, the stage, screen, radio, or other kinds of plague plays. We are also encouraging submissions of essays and reflections regarding the changing landscape of theatre as during the outbreak of COVID-19 and even what will be the theatre outbreak post-COVID.

Submissions from BIPOC, LGBTQ+, and womxn scriptwriters and essay writers are especially encouraged!

No deadline is currently set.

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, contact information, a short bio, and the title of the piece.
  • Then include your piece as a separate document as a blind copy. PDF and Word document submissions are okay.
  • 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 a biannual publication published online. 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 our website. However, all rights revert back to you upon publication.

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. If your piece has appeared elsewhere and has permission to be reprinted in a curated online publication, we ask you help us with an appropriate acknowledgment its previous publication. We may ask for proof that it has permission to be reprinted before going ahead with its publication in our magazine.

We absolutely will not accept any work that is racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic, gratuitously violent, 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!

some scripts literary magazine seeks submissions for Issue 4: "Outbreak"!

web site

Deadline December 31, 2020

Who We Are
Publishing twice a year, some scripts literary magazine seeks to uplift the voices of scriptwriters who have fewer opportunities than fiction, poetry, or nonfiction writers to see their work in print. We believe scripts–whether for the stage, screen, radio, or Zoom–have literary merit and deserve recognition for their writing beyond performance. We desire to be a platform to uplift the voices of new and emerging scriptwriters first and foremost before established scriptwriters.

What We're Looking For
We seek stage plays, screenplays, radio plays, monologues, Zoom plays, essays on theatre/film during the pandemic, and script reviews for possible publication in our upcoming issue. All people, within the US and outside of it, are encouraged to submit! You may submit as many pieces as you'd like, but try to keep it under three per writer. (As a note: at this time we cannot publish full-length stage plays or screenplays.)

There is no restriction on scripts that have been previously produced. If you have a script that has been previously published, we will consider re-publication, but we may ask for proof of previous publication and how best to credit them.

At this time, we regret we cannot compensate contributors. We are, however, working to change this by running a fundraiser to help compensate contributors for Issue 5.

Deadline: tentatively December 31, 2020 (depending on the amount of submissions we receive, we may extend the deadline)

How to Submit
Submit via email to submissions@some-script.com or somescriptslitmag@gmail.com in a Microsoft Word or PDF file. The script must be a blind copy and a separate document with the title page and your contact info must be included.


Also find us at: some-scripts.com, facebook.com/somescripts, instagram.com/somescripts

Hadcopy Submissions

The Yale Drama Series Competition strongly urges applicants to submit their scripts electronically, but if that is impossible, we will accept hardcopies.

Submissions for the 2021 competition must be postmarked no earlier than June 1, 2020 and no later than August 15, 2020.

If you are submitting a hard copy of your play, the manuscript must begin with a title page that shows the play's title and your name, address, telephone number, e-mail address (if you have one), and page count; and, a second title page that lists the title of the play only, a 2-3 sentence keynote description of the play, a list of characters, and a list of acts and scenes. Please include a brief biography at the end of the manuscript, on a separate page.

Do not bind or staple the manuscript.

Do not send the only copy of your work. Manuscripts cannot be returned after the competition. If you wish receipt of your manuscript to be acknowledged, please include an email address on the title page or a stamped, self-addressed postcard.

Send the manuscript to Yale Drama Series, P.O. Box 209040, New Haven, CT 06520-9040.

Molecule seeks very short plays for publication

web site

Deadline: July 15, 2020

Molecule accepts submissions of poetry, prose (fiction & non-fiction) plays, reviews and interviews in 50 words or less (including titles and interview questions). Visual artwork of tiny things like tea bags and toothpicks, or tiny paintings, also wanted: no skyscrapers please!

We have a strict word count. Don’t try and trick us we have tiny minds. All submissions should be previously unpublished work.

How should I send my work?

Send submissions in the body of the email or as an attachment to moleculetinylitmag@gmail.com along with a 3rd person bio of no more than 24 words (including name). Please send no more than 5 pieces.

24 words or less for a whole bio, seems random, where did you come up with that?

There are 24 atoms in a molecule of caffeine. What more do you want from us?

When are you open for submissions and when will I hear back?

We are open for submissions for our Fall 2020 Issue June 1 to July 15. Replies will be sent by August 15.

If your work is accepted we ask for first rights (to publish in our online issue) and non-exclusive electronic rights (so we can leave it up on our website). All rights revert to the author upon publication.
