Honor Roll!

New York, NY

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 because of the inherent disincentives and social responsibilities that often fall to women+.

We also recognize the intersectionality of ageism and that it is an additional burden for women+ of color, transfolx, disabled women+, indigenous women+, the economically pressured and others facing marginalization in our society. Honor Roll! actively seeks diversity in its membership, and works to increase opportunity for all women+ playwrights over 40.

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.
