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.

    Andi Matheny Acting Studios wants to give their adult acting students onstage acting experience. They're looking for 10-minute plays and short one-acts with simple staging, specifically from St. Pete writers. They're aiming for students to rehearse over the summer, with a one- or two-weekend fully-staged run in their theatre space in the fall. It's not a paying gig, but they're open to working with playwrights who'd like to use this as an opportunity for script development, and make revisions in the early stages of rehearsal.
