PXP is made possible by submissions from young audience members of NYC.
If you have recently seen a production and would like to submit your experience for publication,
we have the how here.
First, take a moment to learn about the PXP style...
Here are a few guidelines to think about while you are writing...
1. You are not a critic. So please, let go of critique. The artists have made their choices, let's not question them.
2. Keep it personal. That means everything should be written in "I" statements and you should avoid generalizing. If you laughed, let us know, don't tell us the audience thought it was funny.
3. Think about connections. How did you connect to the show? What moments gave you strong emotional responses? Where did your life intersect with the show and characters?
4. Keep it casual. Write as if you are talking to a friend.
5. Be honest. If you went to the playbill to find an actors name, tell us.
6. It includes the PRE and POST. Your experience includes what happened leading up to the show as well as what happened after. How did those affect your experience of the show?
At PXP we don't critique, we narrate our personal experience of going to a show. That includes thoughts, feelings, questions, & whatever else your journey had.
Second, share your writing with PXP.
Third, wait and see. PXP will be in touch.
If PXP decides to publish your experience (we are mostly checking to make sure it matches the PXP style), PXP will buy you a ticket to your next show... sound like a good deal?
