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. Current submission guidelines and needs are below.
