Mardibooks accepting one-act plays for e-book

Mardibooks is giving up to 30 IdeasTap members the opportunity to have their one-act, one-person plays published in an online anthology. Up to 30 IdeasTap members will be selected to become Mardiwriters and to have their pieces published in an IdeasTap/Mardibooks one-act play e-book anthology sold on Amazon.

Mardibooks is looking for one-act, one-person plays of 1,200 to 5,000 words. The actual dialogue must not exceed 5,000 words, though this does not include any stage directions you may use.

The brief judges will be looking for an original, well-devised idea with an interesting plot and developed characterisation. Your play will need to demonstrate an effective use of language with considered and appropriate structural devices and a commanding awareness of audience.

Up to 10 writers will be selected as runners-up qualifying for feedback to support their development as writers

How to apply: you’ll need to sign up to IdeasTap where you will be asked to upload a profile picture and to fill in an online application form.
