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.

    In furthering the company’s mission to, in part, “foster diversity and parity,” on August 1, 2020 we announced a new play contest for playwrights of color (including Black, Indigenous, Latinx, Asian, etc.) This contest is different from many out there in that we are seeking not so much new plays as potential new members of our company who wish to work with us continuously in the future to develop their new plays.
