Writer Submissions

Thank you for your interest in working with the team at the Latiné Musical Theatre Lab! We're always excited to meet new writers and learn about new musicals, as well as hear from our community of writers and get updates on the development of your shows! Whatever you have to share, we can't wait to hear it!

Submission Process

Welcome to our rolling submission process! By submitting your work, you're giving us the opportunity to consider your musical for all current and upcoming programs at the Lab. Whether your musical is in its early stages or nearing completion, we welcome submissions at any stage of development.

Programs and Opportunities

All shows submitted will be considered for our various programs and opportunities. Additionally, individual writers may be considered for programs specifically highlighting or supporting them. Please note that all Lab programs include a stipend for writers, and we cover all producing costs for our programs.

For a glimpse into our previous programs, visit our programs page. However, please keep in mind that our slate and availability of programs are continuously evolving.

Eligibility Criteria

To be eligible for submission, your show must include at least one Hispanic/Latino/a/e-identifying individual within its core writing team (book, music, or lyrics). We embrace a wide definition of what a musical can be and encourage applications of material covering a diverse range of subjects and topics, not limited to Hispanic/Latine stories.

Submission Guidelines

We have no specific formatting requirements for submissions. However, we recommend reviewing the Dramatists Guild's formatting guidelines as a helpful resource.

Submission Frequency

You are welcome and encouraged to submit as many shows as you would like. However, we ask that you wait at least 6 months before resubmitting the same musical. Ideally, resubmissions should also wait to occur once meaningful changes have been made to the material.

This extends to musicals we may have worked on in the past - we are always happy to review updated material!

Next Steps

At the Latiné Musical Theatre Lab, we deeply value each submission we receive. While our team works to review each submission, please understand that we won't be able to provide feedback on submissions at this time. However, please know that every piece of work we receive will be read and carefully considered.

If your submission is selected for further consideration, you can expect a personal email from us, sharing details about the next steps in the process.

Privacy Statement

Material submitted here will be kept private and will only be reviewed by the Lab and its representatives. All material submitted through this form shall remain the exclusive property of the individuals submitting it. Submission of material does not transfer or alter any ownership rights pertaining to the artistic material.


And lastly, we're mindful of the time and effort required for each submission you make, especially with various requirements across different opportunities. It's why we offer minimal requirements - please feel encouraged to send what you have as you have it, and we look forward to reading and listening to your work!
