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.

    The Bard MFA will be a place where the arts meet in persons, not in theories or skills. The Faculty will be drawn from resourceful artists active in their fields. The conversation among and between the disciplines is a shared project of learning and discourse. Students in one discipline shall also be exposed to the steady commentary and support of artists from other disciplines – whose perceptions, founded on a life of work and thinking, will be of direct and material value to the work going on. This will mean an abhorrence of abrupt specialization. The Program is thus devoted to the...

  • Inspired by the aspirations of the grange movement, the Ancram Opera House creates meaningful encounters through the performing arts that forge connection and community. We believe performances—experienced in our small, intimate space—offer the possibility for real exchange, instill a sense of place and contribute to healthier and happier lives. Our hall fosters an audience’s immersion with a performance to make it complete and the potential for personal growth that the arts provide. We also look to Ancram's pastoral character to nurture fervent artistic creation.

    The Max’s Kansas Project embraces the philosophy of Mickey Ruskin, the creator of Max’s Kansas City, and was established in his memory in 2001.

He was a true patron of the arts who provided a refuge, a home-away-from-home for everybody who was anybody in the arts, many of whom are now famous. Since Max’s was known to cross boundaries of generations, to connect the old with the new and embrace the youth of the future as well as...
