Real Reviews from Real Members:
“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
“Finally someone has taken the time to compile listings that I do not have time for and wouldn’t know where to begin!”
-Roman Long-Gonzalez, Playwright & Author
“I recommend that all my students join and use Play Submission Helper.”
-Jacob Juntunen, head of the MFA and PhD Playwriting Programs at Southern Illinois University

-Lorraine Portman, Adjunct Playwriting Professor at Flagler College
“My membership has been a tremendous help and something I will continue to use. I especially appreciate your format, your user-friendly layout and design, and ease of operation.”
-Tom Parks, Playwright
“The very first submission I made through PSH was selected by a theatre company for production! I’m very excited and looking forward to using this great resource as I search for more opportunities for my works to be presented.”
-Michael, Member Playwright
“This year I won a few play writing competitions that I found out about through this site! This has helped me market myself as a writer! “
-Jesse David Johnson, 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
“I have Play Submissions Helper to thank for my last four productions. I love this site, it is so easy to use and full of incredibly helpful information. The cost is very low in comparison to how much time it saves you in research.”
-Mercedes Segesvary, Member Playwright
“I have had multiple successes with opportunities found in PSH postings!! The listings are a vital source for Playwrights seeking a stage!”
-Andrew Michael Storm, Member Playwright
“I took full advantage of PSH’s easy-to-use service and submit to countless theaters all over the globe. I’ve since been to London for a professional reading, and am going to New York and Hollywood. PSH has literally done the work for you and everything is laid out in a very organized and concise manner.”
-Jason Kuhn, Member Playwright
“Best value on the web! PSH has shown me submission opportunities that I couldn’t find on the usual periodicals. MOST IMPORTANT… if I check in regularly, I don’t miss deadlines!”
-Tom Canagh, Member Playwright
“The list is comprehensive and informative. 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
“What a wonderful collection of submission possibilities all in one place. I look forward each month to the announcement, knowing I have a few days until the end of the month to meet deadlines for that month, and then I move on to the next. Worth every penny!”
-Chalmers, Member Playwright
“Playwright Submission Helper has been a terrific tool helping me target my various works and to keep from missing any deadlines. I’m not sure how I could find one source for so many opportunities.”
-Paul, 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!”
