dg resource directory
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.

While the Foundation will consider a wide range of requests for funding, the charity's original Trust Deed gives priority to...
  • Courier is the defining media brand for a new generation who want to live and work on their own terms. Last month, we wrote an open letter declaring our support for Black Lives Matter. We believe that every voice raised against racism can help to make a difference, but that words must be followed by action. This fund is just one of the ways we are looking to take responsibility and address the injustices that millions of Black entrepreneurs face every day.
