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.

    As Philadelphia’s premier producer of new work, we have been actively involved in the commissioning and development of new plays since our inception in 1988, and are always seeking provocative and dynamic new plays that can be considered for production. To that end, in August 2017 we launched our New Play Development Award, geared toward promising plays that could benefit from additional development and have the potential to be premiered by InterAct in future seasons.

    About PlayPenn: We are a development conference rather than a festival or showcase for new work.
