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.

And following this vision, he soon created the first truly affordable phono cartridge, the AT-1, in the company’s...

  • We are a group of theater artists and companies joining forces during the pandemic to produce mail-based theatrical experiences. Many of us first met in the summer of 2020 in the Orchard Project’s international digital think-tank, the Liveness Lab.

Wildly varied in form, content, and duration, these experiences have been...
