How to Submit So Your Plays Get Produced

How To Submit So Your Plays Get Produced - a workshop led by award-winning playwright and Dramatists Guild Northeastern Regional Council Member Stephen Kaplan. The workshop will talk about best practices in sharing your work, networking, record keeping, and more. 


This workshop is designed to inspire writers to market their work more effectively. You hear it all the time: the only difference between unproduced playwrights and produced playwrights is that produced playwrights get their work seen by the decision makers. That translates to submissions and networking, a daunting task we'd like to simplify. This workshop covers resources for finding opportunities, tips for easier submission, success stories from cold calls, and remote networking.

Thursday, August 20 via Zoom link
