PLAYS WE PUBLISH
Christian Publishers publishes plays, musicals, and theatre books for the christian community. We publish a wide range of Christian plays, musicals, books, liturgies, banners, and other products.
 
 
WHAT WE SEEK
The following are the types of products we seek:
* Full Length Plays and Musicals
* One Act Plays and Musicals
* Christian Books
 
We publish plays for the Christian market including but not limited to: Elementary School-High School, Adults, and Youth Groups.
 
Plays that don't go anywhere - Be sure your play builds. People have short attention spans, and if the story is too bogged down in excessive dialogue, or if the play wonders aimlessly, they will simply tune out. If the comedy or suspense doesn't build from scene to scene, if we're not involved with the main character(s) or the dramatic question, then the play isn't going anywhere.

HOW TO SUBMIT AND WHAT TO INCLUDE
We highly encourage you to send your submission via our Website at www.christianpub.com, by clicking on Submit a Play in the Author’s Corner on the left border. You may also submit a play by e-mail with attachment at editor@christianpub.com or by snail-mail with a complete manuscript to me at:
Christian Publishers
Attn: Editor

Cedar Rapids, Iowa 52406

When you submit a play, please include the following:
Short synopsis of the work
The play’s duration, and cast size
Character list
Production history (if any - not required)
Short bio of the playwright
Contact information, including e-mail address, phone number, and mailing address
 
Microsoft Word and Adobe Acrobat are our preferred text processing programs; however, if you use another program please use Rich Text Format (rtf). This option is available in most word processing programs by going to the “File” menu and selecting “Save As…” If you are only able to submit a manuscript by mail, then please send the manuscript to the address mentioned earlier in this section. Again, be sure to include your full contact information and the play’s genre, duration, etc. ELECTRONIC SUBMISSIONS SUBMITTED THROUGH THE AUTHOR'S CORNER ON OUR WEBSITE ARE PREFERRED.
 
Advice from the editor:
Keep writing and don't become discouraged. Don't be afraid to rewrite your work. Don't be discouraged by a rejection. Write every day. And please, be patient with response times. Although we try to respond within a short time, response times vary according to the time of the year. Just remember, we will give your script individual attention, and we don't want to rush the process.
