Literary Submissions

General Submission Guidelines

Submission Period: Currently Closed.

The LATC is interested in previously un-produced, full-length plays that examine ALL under-represented cultures of Los Angeles. We are committed to celebrating the tradition and innovation in theater that comes from people telling their own stories and digging deep into their own traditions to address important issues of our society.

All works submitted will be considered for The LATC Emerging Playwrights Initiative, a development program geared towards nurturing new and emerging playwrights.

Playwrights may submit work in one of two ways:
1) through a literary agent
2) submitting a query letter, play synopsis, character breakdown, and statement of play’s development history, along with a 10-page dialogue sample and a self-addressed STAMPED (SASE) envelope to:

Literary Department
The LATC
514 S. Spring St.
Los Angeles, CA 90013

Playwright may include a current email address in lieu of SASE for response.

All submission materials will be recycled. If playwright wishes to have any submitted materials returned, please include a correctly-sized SASE and postage.

**Please Note: Response time is approximately 2-3 months for query letters and 4-6 months for full scripts**
