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.

  • This group is intended to bring together theatre folk during a time when most of us are shuttered to our homes. Every Thursday night, we'll do a new reading with people in their pajamas. The plays will be new and unproduced. We can keep theatre going, no matter what.
  • Ring of Keys is an arts advocacy organization that promotes the hiring of musical theatre professionals - onstage and off - who self-identify as queer women, transgender, and gender non-conforming artists. The only network of its kind, our membership is made up of actors, directors, dancers, singers, stage managers, lighting designers, dramaturgs, artistic directors, producers, casting directors, librettists, lyricists, composers, props designers, scenic designers, sound designers, choreographers, costume designers, and production managers who self-identify as lesbian, bisexual, trans, queer...
  • 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...
  • The Coalition of Theatres of Color (CTC) was first convened in 2004 by the late Ossie Davis and Ruby Dee to address the inequity of funding to chronically underfunded theaters of color. Today CTC exists as a historic assemblage of several of New York’s oldest, ethnically specific, multicultural theaters. CTC membership is comprised of institutions, each thirty years old or more. 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.
  • Building the capacity of advocates, students, artists, organizations and communities to use the arts as an integral part of their social change work. We believe that placing Artistry at the center of solving today’s most pressing issues will create a new type of dialogue and impact.
  • The Village Playwrights was founded in 1985 as a group where Lesbian and Gay playwrights could develop plays in a free and welcoming environment.
  • Our mission is to advance the field of Asian American theater through a national network of organizations and artists. We collaborate to inspire learning and sharing of knowledge, and resources to promote a healthy, sustainable artistic ecology.
  • The Bret Adams / Paul Reisch Foundation will empower artists to produce idea-driven work that will illuminate the human condition and engage in the wider conversation about the role of art in civilization. Our chosen writers will create work that is intellectually and artistically adventurous. We do not want to shy away from controversy as we believe there is no concept or idea too big or too complex to present, and we hope that these works will foster conversation outside of the theatre. The integrity of the product is directly correlated to the integrity of the process, and thus we believe...
  • NYC Playwrights provides submission opportunities, free shows and other theatre related opportunities for theatre lovers in New York City and the world.
  • Creative Capital was formed in 1999 as a way to reinvent cultural philanthropy in an effort to support innovative artists, and it picked up some tenets of venture capital in doing so – specifically the ideas of providing infusions of funding at key moments in an artist’s project, surrounding the artist with mentors and access to a network of cultural experts, and hosting retreats for artists to pitch their projects and express what they need to a large audience of cultural producers and stakeholders. Creative Capital seeks to amplify the voices of artists working in all creative disciplines...
  • BMI supports its songwriters, composers and publishers by taking care of an important aspect of their careers – getting paid. BMI supports businesses and organizations that play music publicly by offering blanket music licenses that permit them to play 14 million musical works. Both relationships save each time and money.
