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.

  • Actors from coast to coast over the years have asked Ronnie Marmo to teach a weekly acting class.

    The Playwrights Union is a collective of dramatists who provide a community of professional and personal support for each other in Los Angeles. It was founded in 2009 by Jennifer Haley, a playwright who had been living in LA for two years and felt the need to connect with local writers. Early members of the group discovered they had commonality in that they considered themselves playwrights, but were living in LA because they either wrote for, or aspired to write for, television and film. “We identified ourselves as dramatic writers building our chops and contacts in all genres, determined...

  • Raised in a basement, fed on radioactive trash, Brooklyn based Rat Queen Theatre Company creates devised musicals that reimagine American history. We find that a lot of historical writing is neglectful of the truth and, honestly -- boring. We use history to question everyone’s assumptions (including our own) about the origins of our society. We utilize the unabashedly loud, queer, and ostentatious to dive deeper into the narratives we think we know and uncover what may have been overlooked.
