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.

    A culture that encourages and embraces new works is a culture that is less likely to repeat past mistakes. For when our only frame of reference are images, stories, myths, and fables from the past, they often become a blueprint for constructing the same patterns of behavior that result in the same predictable outcome. We tell ourselves, without question, “That’s how the story goes – and that’s how it ends.” And thus our worldview, beliefs, and opinions become narrowly focused through a lens of preconceptions and misconceptions. New works are the lifeblood of any art form, they provide a...
