The Dramatists Guild Resource Directory is the only annually printed reference guide containing opportunities for playwrights, composers, lyricists and librettists. Going one step further, the Dramatists Guild has created this fully searchable e-version of all of the information found in the printed directory (affectionately known as the RDO - Resource Directory Online). Using this tool DG members are able to bookmark listings, set up email reminders and search the resources by a plethora of criteria. It is now even easier for you to submit your play or musical to hundreds of resource listings.
Listed below are three sample opportunities with upcoming deadlines, pulled at random
from the more than 900 entries in the full RDO. To find specific opportunities
