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.

  • When we started, there was no template for creating theater over the internet, which turned out to be perfect because we could remove all the obstacles that held us back. At the time, we didn’t know what zoom was or how we could use it. Would people even know how to use it? How much would it cost? And what the heck is a virtual background? We had so many questions, but we watched all of our productions canceled in those horrible first days of Spring 2020. We didn’t have to create a “season” of plays; we could choose any plays we wanted to do. It gave us a kind of freedom to select the...
