Send us your work.

We’re excited to plan our upcoming 2018-19 season and are currently reading submissions; if you’ve submitted a story and haven’t yet heard back, we haven’t forgotten you! Thanks for your patience.

Writers: Stories on Stage Davis invites submissions year-round of short stories or standalone novel excerpts of between 1500 and 4000 words. (If you’re looking for information on our annual fiction contest for UC Davis students, click here.)

Manuscripts must be double-spaced, in minimum 12-point type, and uploaded as Word docs or PDFs. Please do not copy and paste your submission into the message box. Please submit only one manuscript at a time; please don’t submit an entire novel and ask us to find an excerpt.

Submissions that do not follow these guidelines will be turned down without comment.

We give preference to authors living in Davis and surrounding areas, but are happy to look at great writing from anywhere, as long as authors are willing and able to attend our event.

We read submissions anonymously; please do not include your name on your manuscript.

Actors: Stories on Stage Davis is also accepting written resumes or video links from actors who are interested in reading and interpreting written works. Again, we give preference to local talent.

Actors and writers will receive an honorarium for their work.
