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.

    Weekly workshops helmed by Emma Goldman Sherman are held in the theatre district in Midtown from 2 pm-6pm. Writing individually in a group is very helpful because we learn to push through blocks that can trip us up at home. Because everyone else in the room is writing, the pressure to continue helps us learn to push ourselves, and that habit can teach us that we usually can go further than we think we can, and we are often grateful for that little extra push! When we return home, we are able to work better, for longer periods, with greater focus. Writers do not share what was just written...
