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.

Every fifteen minutes, I give a new writing prompt designed to get writers thinking more deeply about the characters in their work. We work with our microphones off (so people can listen to their own music, or write in silence if they prefer) and with our cameras on (so we can create a sense of community and accountability). At the end of class, writers are allowed to unmute themselves for an informal conversation to discuss how the prompts worked for them and if there's anything they're struggling...
