* Easter Children's Pageants
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.
When you submit a play, please include the following:
Short synopsis of the work
The play’s duration, and cast size
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.
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.
