Script Submission Forms
We currently have three different types of Script Submission Forms: New Scripts, Revised Scripts, and Musical Scripts. Please make sure you select the correct submission form.
For produced play scripts not yet enrolled in the Play Distribution Program or for scripts that were published and are now out of print.
For scripts that are currently being sold in the Canadian Play Outlet but now have a new and updated draft to replace the older version.
For any scripts that contain a musical score or specific music instructions.
Frequently Asked Questions
The Play Distribution program allows playwrights to submit scripts that have not been published to allow for greater access to their work. Scripts are sold digitally or in hard copy through the Canadian Play Outlet (CPO). If your play has had a professional production, it will be entered into the Copyscript program and given an ISBN. Once your script is published by a Publisher, your script will not be available as a copyscript (rather, we sell the published version for you instead).
Once a script is received it can take up to two weeks to process.
Digital Copyscripts: Current PGC members receive 25% of each sale of each of their digital scripts through the Canadian Play Outlet. Playwrights whose memberships have lapsed receive a 10% royalty.
For all script sales, PGC pays royalties to creators when the creator has reached a minimum of $20 in earnings by the end of a fiscal year. If the creator has not reached the minimum $20 in earnings by that time, the earned amount “rolls over” to the next fiscal year. This continues until the playwright has earned at least $20 in royalties or after three (3) fiscal years, at which time any royalties held by PGC are paid out, regardless of dollar amount. PGC’s Program Manager will be in touch to let you know when a royalty payment will be paid out to you.
