Next Stage Press has reopened our Submissions to everyone!!
A few dos and don’ts.
DO NOT SUBMIT 10-MINUTE PLAYS!! (They are too short to publish alone) – The submission will be deleted.
ALSO, DON’T SUBMIT PLAYS THAT ARE UNDER 30 PAGES. (Unless they have a companion piece that can be grouped with them) – If there is no companion piece, the submission will be deleted.
DO NOT SEND AN INQUIRY ABOUT THE SUBMISSION. If you haven’t heard from us after 8 months, it is safe to assume it doesn’t fit our needs…but feel free to submit again.
DO NOT SUBMIT THE PLAY VIA EMAIL!!!
IT MUST COME THROUGH THIS PORTAL!!
Thank you in advance for the submission.
Any email we receive concerning things we have covered here will be deleted.
short details, no extra stuff to have to read, and no submission fee. all good
Very user-friendly portal. Good submission experience.
open and easy submission policy
A fair process that gives ample opportunities to diverse writers.
A simple, easy to access way for writers to share their work with a greater audience. Easy, user-friendly and effective.
I submit a lot of my plays to theatre companies, but this was by far the quickest and easiest format to use to submit one’s work. Thank you.
So great to have a publisher that will consider plays whether or not they’ve been produced yet. Less focus on marketing (“it must have quotable reviews from productions”) and more on the quality of the scripts.
My play, Breakfast With Gandhi, is going to be published by Next Stage Press and I am delighted to submit my award-winning play, Sweet Texas Reckoning, as well! The submission process is seamless and the communication with NSP, awesome!
