performing arts in print


We're looking for the next Wordville bestseller

We are open to submissions and are looking for original voices and opportunities to work on books about the performing arts. We are fascinated by theatre, opera, music, dance and all forms of performing arts. Wordville wants to shed new light on untold stories, behind the scenes and on the stage, specifically featuring those companies and individuals that helped shape the art form. We are interested in LGBTQ+ content, feminist work, voices in translation and work from the disabled community. Our interest is in the creative process, the relationship between performer and audience and the challenges to get work developed and seen. We aim to work with a widely diverse group of writers.


How to Submit

We would like to see:

1. a covering letter - please tell us a little about yourself 

2. a one or two page synopsis - let us know what's unique about your manuscript

3. the first three chapters of your completed manuscript 

We only receive submissions by email, addressed to

We will do our best to respond quickly. There may be many reasons that Wordville can’t publish your work this year, so don’t be discouraged if you get a ‘no’. We know how hard it is to get your work out there and wish every writer the very best.
