Mudlark Theater Company is making another Mudpie – a show shaped and molded from original pieces written by kids in the community – and the directors are looking for short stories, poems, original fairy tales, personal essays, rants, reflections and the like that can be brought to life on stage.

Children ages 6-16 are free to submit something from their past or write something new. Stories can be any length and about any topic. Mudlark asks only that the writing consist of entirely original characters (i.e., no stories about Harry Potter or Percy Jackson). Any pieces that draw heavily from real life experiences of the author, are welcome and appreciated. Finally, stories should be written entirely by kids. Adults should not co-write, edit or even correct their children’s stories.

The pieces selected will be performed this spring by a group of kids ages 9-14. Children whose stories are selected for Mudpie will receive complimentary tickets to the show(s) and official recognition in the show program and press release.

Entry Submission Guidelines
