Submissions Policy
53rd State does not accept unsolicited submissions as we are a tiny collective of volunteers. The editors reach out to writers and artists of interest to solicit play submissions, reading multiple plays by solicited authors whenever possible. We regularly seek out recommendations for new writers from writers we have published and whose work we admire as a means of diversifying our tastes and encountering new talents.
