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.

  • Harbor Springs, MI
    We believe that connecting people from different backgrounds and cultures opens minds and makes for a more interesting and compassionate world. As our children were growing up we hosted multiple exchange students and always felt that we received far more than we gave. When our children left the nest we were left with an underutilized studio apartment space above our garage and we decided to start an artist residency program to provide opportunities and support to emerging artists. One of our daughters and our son-in-law are professional artists, and we have observed the challenges artists...
