We here at PSH have been providing free monthly lists of submission opportunities to the playwriting community for years. As anyone who has tried to do this on their own knows, it is an enormous undertaking.
This month, we have catalogued over 30 submissions opportunities… But this month only a handful are listed below.
Instead of listing all the May opps, we are running a membership drive this month, and asking that you signup as a full paid member.
Signing up will get you access to not only this month’s listings, but also to our entire database of 400+ play submissions opps. And, your support will also help us continue to be able to maintain and upgrade our services for all playwrights.
We call that a win-win.
So come signup now, and see your next play where it’s meant to be — on stage!
