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 current edition of the NTF involuntarily mirrors another line from Hamlet: “with one eye merry and the other crying”; laughing and crying masks… This ancient dual principle of theater representation is no longer just a form of coexistence of comedic and tragic, but of hope and anxiety, bloom and gloom of all kinds. Restlessness and Memory are the polarities that define the NTF 2020.
