“Play Submissions Helper is THE go-to resource tool for playwrights everywhere…and has been for years. These people are constantly updating & improving.”
-Robin MacDuffie, Playwright
“Play Submission Helper is quick and inclusive. It lists accurate submission dates. My plays have been performed 31 times over the past 12 years, and many of these are due to the help of PSH.”
-Dean, Playwriting Professor Emeritus at Baker University
“The best source I’ve found for contests & information about new play opportunities is PlaySubmissionsHelper.com. With PSH, I have information about all the theatres & submission details. I can easily click on a theatre and go immediately to its website. If you write plays, this is a resource you should have.”
-Leroy Clark, Author of Practical Playwriting and Writing for the Stage
“The service that PSH offers is invaluable. Being able to find venues for new plays all over the world is great. Keep up the good work.”
-Mike C., President of Dunedin Showcase Theater
“I subscribed to your list this year and it’s been a great way for me to find play festivals & competitions. In the last 6 months I will have had 4 of my short plays included in various festivals.”
-Donna Noval, Playwright & Actor
“I work all day long and found it tedious to seek out submission opportunities. I came upon Play Submissions Helper & within moments was able to vet outlets that my works were right for. Lifesaver. I’ve already submitted to some pretty MAJOR competitions as a result.”
-Playwright Marcinho Savant, of the The Marcinho Savant Group
“Many playwriting groups recommended you, and after 3 days of going thru your list, I’ve sent out a number of plays, and am still only up to the “M’s”. Thanks for the good work. You are more than worth the money.”
-Jack Peterson, Member Playwright

PHS is a great tool for playwrights and anyone in Theater to comb through and see opportunities for new voices/new works. If I had to research this information myself it would take an incredible amount of time. The fact that PHS does this for a small subscription fee, it is invaluable.”
-Whit, Member Playwright

-Tom Canagh, Member Playwright

I submit to at least five venues a month, and have been successful in placing a one-act and a ten-minute play in theatre companies I would not have even known about had it not been for PSH. I love this service. Invaluable for playwrights who long to see their work produced.”
-J. H., Member Playwright

“The most comprehensive and up-to-date listing service for submissions I’ve ever seen. The format allows me to sort quickly through the opportunities, find the ones that are a good fit. I know I am submitting more often because of this service, and that alone is worth the really reasonable subscription fee.”
-Terry Milner, Member Playwright
“PSH has been an invaluable resource for me. It’s wonderful to be able to learn about so many calls for play submissions all in one place. Because of the opportunities I discovered using PSH, my play has been selected for three different contests. PSH is a great value, highly recommended!”
