To cultivate healthy collaborations with prolific youth and their families, we welcome proposals from children with brilliant ideas who want to see them grow. If you are the parent of an exceptional child that has a creative idea for a book, play, film, or social demonstration, please submit a proposal. We also welcome proposals from artists, professionals, schools, organizations, and businesses that want to collaborate with us on one of our projects. Charlie’s Port will examine the possibilities of working together. Submission guidelines are below.
Charlie’s Port nurtures the talent of young people. We only accept literary works, art, or ideas that are created by children under the age of 18.
Guidelines vary, depending upon the type of submission. We accept humanitarian and ministry campaign ideas, stand-up comedy acts, visual art collections, screenplays, plays, poems, short stories, and middle grade / young adult books and proposals. As long as it has been created by a child, we will accept the submission. Send a query to firstname.lastname@example.org. Include the following in the body of an email and/or in attachments.
- Child’s name and bio (activities, accomplishments, hobbies, etc.)
- Parent/Guardian contact information. (If you are a teacher, minister, librarian or other professional, explain why you are submitting the work and what you would like to see happen.)
- The proposal. A proposal to us can be a completed book, play, screenplay or poem. It can be a work in development. It can be a plan for a social mission, a social demonstration, or photos of visual art for a gallery proposal. (Note: If you are submitting a completed middle grade or YA book, send a sample of the first 3 chapters, explaining that the book is completed. If you are submitting a work in progress, you can submit the entire work.)
Charlie’s Port was a fiscally sponsored project of Fractured Atlas for several years, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization in New York City. Current contributions are from parents, artists, local Georgia businesses, and artists. Their in-kind donations, volunteer work, and financial support help execute our projects and develop new work. We are in the process of obtaining our own 501(c)(3) with the help of Georgia Lawyers For The Arts.
