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.

  • Irons in the Fire is Fault Line Theatre's year-round reading series of new plays in development. We believe that every play and every playwright requires something a little different, and we want to give our artists the right sandbox to play freely within. So the format for both process and presentation is intentionally malleable. Each public presentation of these works in progress is the culmination of a few hours, a few weeks, or even a few months of rehearsal, depending on what each project requires. These readings are hosted in an environment that appropriately celebrate that particular...
