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.

So, we have a dedicated office in Shoreditch, and maintain a network of contacts worldwide – but also aim for the personal touch. We keep our business highly specialised, our client base small but perfectly formed, and staff numbers to a minimum so as to provide maximum continuity in all our...
