Dramatic Publishing wishes to bring out a collection of scenes and
monologues tailored for the classroom entitled Original Middle School
Scenes and Monologues. This anthology will be similar in format to our
Scenes and Monologues for Young Actors and Classroom Scenes and
I will be serving as the editor on the project, and sincerely hope you
will submit your work for consideration. Also, if you know other
authors who focus on the young performer, I would appreciate it
greatly if you would forward these guidelines to them. Contributors
will receive (2) complimentary copies of the book and a one-time
payment: $100 for each scene published and $50 for each monologue
published. Contributors will retain all performance/ reprint rights.
Inclusion of your work in the anthology does not limit your right to
submit it to other publishers as part of a larger work.
