SUBMISSION GUIDELINES

 

All are welcome to submit a story for consideration. If you are interested in a particular show, please email:

submit@sparkoffrose.com

Note: Be sure to put the theme of the show in the subject line. See list of upcoming themes.

Include a sketch of your story (1-2 paragraphs describing the arc of the story and connection to the theme) or the actual story if it is already written, and how you came to hear about us. We will then put you in touch with the appropriate producer.

Upcoming shows book well in advance, so we encourage you to contact us about your interest as early as possible. We will review all the submissions and notify you either way about your participation in the evening.


Requirements:

  • All potential participants must have seen a Spark show before they perform.

  • Stories must be true, first person narratives.

  • All stories must be 6-8 minutes long when read aloud (approx. 1300 words).

  • The story must have a connection to the theme of the evening.

  • Attendance at mandatory rehearsal the Saturday before the show (10am-12pm).

  • Storytellers are encouraged to read off the page; neither memorization nor props are necessary.

  • Storytellers are expected to work with the producing team to shape and structure their stories.

  • For those who are invited to participate, a final copy of the story must be submitted at least one week before the show.

  • At this time, we do not permit audio or videotaping at performances.

Please note: To ensure opportunities for new voices, we ask that our storytellers wait six months before performing again at Spark Off Rose. Occasionally, circumstances require that we make exceptions.
