Submission Guidelines


Everything That Rises performs original staged productions of creative nonfiction, theatrical fiction, poetry, monologues and ten minute plays. We also produce entirely unscripted shows of personal stories paired with live music.

Above all, we seek authentic voices and diverse points of view. We are just as interested in what could have happened as we are in what actually happened.
