45 Play Submissions w/ May (and late April) Deadlines

Howdy playwrights, here is your list of May play submissions opportunities!

But we’re doing something a bit different this month, so listen up for a quick sec:

As you know, we help playwrights by making these monthly blog posts available for free to everyone.

But researching and compiling this list is a huge undertaking, as anyone who has tried themselves has found out the hard way(!)…

So to make maintaining this free blog worth our while, we also offer a $19 paid-membership subscription to Play Submissions Helper, which gets you EVERY SINGLE opportunity we have found — 350+ opps that take year round submissions, plus opps with deadlines throughout 2014 and even into 2015.

And we update year-round.

So now the thing we’re doing different:í‚  There’s a hole in the chart below.í‚  To get access to the missing info (and our ridiculous number of additional opps), we ask that you please support us by by clicking here to become a paid member

And to sweeten the pot, use coupon code MAY for 40% off the first year.í‚  Because we know once you join, you’ll wonder how you ever lived before…
