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.

    I'm the first to admit that what we do seems ridiculously simple. In fact, it's hard to explain to others who haven’t seen it why our show is so funny and entertaining. How is it that a bunch of actors, improvisers, stand-up comics and voiceover artists standing on stage and reading old radio scripts from the 1940s and 1950s can be that be entertaining?!
