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.

  • Honor Roll! is an advocacy and action group of women+ playwrights over 40 as well as our women+ over 40 allies. The term “women+” refers to a spectrum of gender identification that includes women, non-binary identifiers and trans. Honor Roll! was ignited by our shared recognition of the pervasive yet seldom acknowledged bias against women+ playwrights over 40. Our members have in common the lived experience of being overlooked when we were younger, due to sexism only to find ourselves now being passed over, due to ageism, or in other cases, of starting our playwriting journeys later in life...

Together, CTC seeks to sustain the legacy of our institutions while producing, supporting, collaborating and presenting productions and events that tell our stories, our way, with pride and dignity.
  • The Village Playwrights was founded in 1985 as a group where Lesbian and Gay playwrights could develop plays in a free and welcoming environment.

  • Every month (mostly), we pick a featured playwright whose work we love. Then we curate a rotating group of resident and guest directors who in turn collaborate with the talents of the actors of their choice. Individually, each group rehearses and interprets one short work of a featured playwright before then all coming together to form that month's PLAYxPLAY. The series offers an audience the rare opportunity to see a wide range of a single writer's voice in one evening, while simultaneously offering the playwright the chance to see a variety of interpretations of their work by an array of...
