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.

Essential Theatre Playwriting Award
Material must be unproduced of at least an hour's length. Writer must be resident of Georgia.
Minnesota Shorts Festival of Plays
The Minnesota Shorts Play Festival will begin accepting submissions starting January 1, 2014 for its sixth annual festival. Scripts can be on any topic but remember that the festival is a community performance (that means excessive foul language and nudity might not make the cut). Short plays must be performed in 15 minutes or less and sent as a PDF or DOC file. Keep all identifying information (Playwright name and contact info) to the title page because the plays are judged blind. Minnesota writers may submit 2 scripts but writers outside of Minnesota may submit 1. Playwrights must find a director and cast for the play. The MN Shorts staff can help link you to actors and directors from the area. Each night the audience will pick a "Best of the Festival Play" that can win an additional $100. Please visit our website for more information.
Community Theatre Association of Michigan
Author must be a resident of Michigan. Submit script by e-mail, PDF only.
