Play Submission Guidelines

Daniel Guyton

Writing Development Coordinator

For this year's AmpliFest, we are seeking a combination of plays and other performing arts.  Artists are encouraged to submit a maximum of 15 minutes of material for consideration.  This could mean:

  • one 15-minute play 

  • fifteen one-minute plays 

  • three 5-minute plays or songs that you wish to perform

  • a magic show no longer than 15 minutes

  • a stand-up comedy routine

  • poetry slam

  • or just about any other performance art that you wish to present. 

The only requirement is that each artist is limited to 15 minutes maximum.  We will pay a small stipend to each artist (TBD).  THIS OPPORTUNITY IS AVAILABLE TO GEORGIA BASED ARTISTS ONLY. 

Also we need to know if you are 


When you submit your work, please include a biography, history of your work, character breakdown (if applicable), and a brief description or synopsis of any plays submitted.

Electronic submissions in PDF only, please! Simply click the button in order to submit your script.  There is no submission fee. 

Please feel free to contact Daniel Guyton, Writing Development Coordinator, for questions.


Deadline: February 29, 2020

For the 2020 festival, we are specifically interested in works that express what a day in the life of Americans is like, especially those that bridge understanding between people with diverse perspectives.

Adult content is fine and should be very relevant to the script - not feel "extraneous".

Previously produced works are welcome, BUT if it has been produced in Georgia within the last three years, please let us know where and when. 

Deadline: February 29, 2020

Response: April 15

Participants: Georgia playwrights only

Cast Size: Unlimited

Length: No more than 15 minutes

Format: All performance art welcomed; we do not have media projection at this time. 

Stipend: Small stipend TBD

Pet Peeves:

  • Extraneous cursing

  • Under-developed characters

  • Didacticism 

Bonus Points: We encourage diversity in terms of character age, gender identity, ethnicity, disability, and sexual orientation. Plays in which characters can be played by a variety of performer backgrounds are especially appealing, though we are not opposed to plays requiring a specific character type as well. We just want to encourage you to think outside the box when it comes to casting.

Script Limit: 1 per writer
