Step 2: Carefully Read Submissions Guidelines

Submission Guidelines 

The Braid produces contemporary American stories that have some Jewish content or Jewish resonance.  Most of the stories are true.  If you want to see your work performed on our stage, your best chance is to submit a first-person narrative OR a short story that is no longer than 1500 words AND illuminates a theme that The Braid is exploring in the upcoming seasons (themes listed below.)  Stories, one-acts, poems or songs will be considered.  Sometimes we incorporate short, 5-8 minute plays into these salons if they fit the theme.

We are not taking submissions for full length plays this season.

Please do not submit your work unless it fits a theme.

No, you need not be Jewish to submit, but we prefer work have some Jewish content or Jewish resonance.

All genders are welcome and encouraged to write for The Braid.

Yes, all works are given an honorarium based on how many times the piece is performed.

Of course, you are Jewish.

Gladly and with great interest.  We love stories from Jews from diverse ethnic backgrounds.

One acts that run longer than 8 minutes will not be considered.

Please, do not submit works
