The act of submitting creative work for a dramatist is as necessary as finishing it. But the process of finding the right submission opportunity can feel overwhelming. This is why, for more than 20 years, the Dramatists Guild has compiled a submissions and opportunities database, and published a full directory of theatres, agents, festivals, contests, workshops, retreats, and other submission opportunities to help make the life of the dramatist an easier one.

This functionality is part of suite of resources designed to help playwrights, composers, lyricists and librettists.  

Only active members or subscribers of the Guild may use the Resource Directory.

    We are committed to developing and producing new Canadian work that complements and enhances our focus on what is traditionally defined as the classical repertoire. While we’re open to all forms – drama, comedy, adaptations, musicals and family-friendly fare – we’re especially interested in ambitious, large-cast plays that articulate the great themes of classical theatre. We also favour plays that feature a female point of view and offer sizeable opportunities for female actors, and that reflect the cultural diversity of life in Canada today.
  • Rochester, NY

    From our captivating East End Spiegeltent, venues and acts radiate out into the city in every direction. And the special way the Fringe lineup gets built each year is becoming the envy of other festivals, with its unique, bifurcated style. “Bifurcated”? Wait, before you Google that: It’s simply how we describe the dual nature of Rochester’s Fringe. Organizers present a handful of special events, but the vast majority are curated by the venues themselves from artists’ applications. That’s why the lineup is so astoundingly diverse and creative. Why you’ll see surprising new performances here...
