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 Reformers are an experimental performing arts collective with one simple goal: to tell stories not commonly seen on local stages. Our original plays explore themes of fear, dread, and the unknown, all with a generous infusion of warped humor. We like to play with form, taking our audiences on site-specific journeys and fully immersing them in the worlds we build. We reject the popular notion that theater is a dying art form; rather, we think its image needs some rehabilitation as a source of fun for everyone rather than an elite activity reserved for a special few.
