Heartland Plays, Inc. publishes online a wide variety of plays and drama products including, but not limited to, full-length comedies and dramas, one-acts, short play collections, and musicals. We strive to find plays that have the quality and diversity to meet the needs and interests of most theatres and producing organizations; Professional, Community, Summer Stock, College, High School, and Theatre for Children and Youth.

Response time to your submission is normally 4-6 months but may be greater due to the large number of submissions. If you have not received a response after 6 months, contact us for an update. You may submit to other publishers simultaneously. However, please notify us immediately should another publisher offer a contract for the Work. Once we have made a determination regarding our interest in publishing or declining to publish your Work, we will contact you via e-mail.

At this time, Heartland Plays, Inc. accepts unsolicited electronic submissions only in a Microsoft Word (.doc), Adobe PDF (.pdf), or a Rich Text Format (.rtf) file.

Heartland Plays, Inc. selects plays and other drama products for publication from many submissions and is under no obligation to publish or consider your submission for publication nor will it publish or license your Work without a signed contract.
