We have no guilt and there’s a lot of pleasure in this call for submissions for our February 5 show, “Guilty Pleasures”! We’re looking for short plays, stories and poems, comedic or dramatic, about the things you know you shouldn’t do but can’t help yourself. We’re looking for plays and stories about small, innocent personal indulgences or staggering, shameful but delicious sins; a work of art, literature or cinema that is considered a guilty pleasure; or even the play, poem or story itself can be a writer’s guilty pleasure. The deadline is December 27 (send to If we select your work for the show, we offer a small honorarium and 2 comp tickets for the performance (at Vintage Theatre in Aurora, Colorado). So, don’t be shy or embarrassed…it’s time to celebrate guilty pleasures!
