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.

    It's not a cabaret. It's the Tiny Storefront Concert Series. Four times a year, Underscore produces TSCS, a high-energy, BYOB weekend of new songs by emerging musical theatre writers, all arranged around a core theme. ​ Audiences come because it's a big, fun party. Writers submit because they can test their work in front of a live audience, and get high-quality videos for their portfolio. Actors and musicians take part because it's a blast, and because even for small-scale events like TSCS, Underscore believes in paying our artists well.
