some scripts in-print anthology “Monologues by LGBTQIA+ Scriptwriters for LGBTQIA+ Actors” Submission Guidelines

Submissions are only allowed by LGBTQIA+ scriptwriters for this upcoming issue. some scripts does not require you to self-ID, however.

While we welcome monologues from all members of the LGBTQIA+ community, we are especially interested in featuring monologues by BIPOC scriptwriters; disabled scriptwriters; and scriptwriters who are trans, nonbinary, intersex, ace/aro; as well as anyone else not mentioned who have otherwise intersecting identities.

Monologues can be excerpts from stage plays, screenplays, radio plays/audio dramas, or Zoom plays. Monologues can also be stand-alone works.

As long as it’s a monologue of some varying length that an LGBTQIA+ actor could foreseeably use for an audition, classwork, or showcase (or gets people to want to read your longer work where it originates from), we’d love to read it! 

Please only submit 1-2 monologues for consideration. This is to ensure that we are able to read from as many scriptwriters as possible. There is a small group of invited contributors who were brought on prior to the open submission period.

This will be some scripts’ first in-print anthology. All scriptwriters chosen for the anthology will be compensated with a $10 token payment and a free printed copy of the anthology.

To submit to some scripts’ special LGBTQIA+ anthology: 

  1. Include a title page in a separate PDF or Word document from the script, detailing your preferred name to be published, email address, a short bio, pronouns if you want, the title of the piece, and any socials.
  2. Then include your piece as a separate document (PDF or Word) with no personal information attached to it. Please include a short synopsis detailing the given circumstances for the monologue, any required identification for the character, and other important details. Please include necessary trigger warnings for the safety of our reading team members. (For example, “TW: mention of sexual assault, body horror, homophobic slur”)
  3. Compile the title page PDF and blinded copy into an email addressed to submissions@some-scripts.com or somescriptslitmag@gmail.com
  4. Feel free to say hello and introduce yourself in a cover letter in the body of the email if you wish! We love getting to know the larger scriptwriting community more and are so happy that some scripts continues to reach more people.

Please find a sample copy of the contract coming soon!!

some scripts literary magazine is an annual online publication. 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 the issue. After that, we ask for archival rights to archive your piece on issuu.com/our website. All rights revert back to you upon publication.

We do accept republished work and, if accepted, will ask you help us with an appropriate acknowledgment of its previous publication. We may ask for proof that it has permission to be reprinted before going ahead with its publication in our magazine.

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.

We absolutely will not accept any work that is racist, sexist, homophobic, transphobic, xenophobic, gratuitously violent, glorifies physical/sexual/emotional assault, 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! Even the price of a coffee helps us along.
