50 Play Submissions Opps w/ September+ Deadlines



Below are play submission opps with September 2016 deadlines:í‚  You can’t get produced, if you don’t get your work out into the world, so you know what to do.í‚  Giddyup!

Time and again, we find that the people who make the investment to become full members of play submissions helper (rather than reading only these free blog posts) gain greater motivation to submit, and realize their dreams…

So this month, instead of providing all the details to every September+ opportunity, some of them are only available to full paying members…

When you make the investment to become a full member, not only will you get all member benefits, but you’ll also give yourself one of the greatest gifts of all: the motivation needed to make 2016 your best playwriting year yet!
