8/30/2009 - will remain on hiatus through September. Sorry folks, but still don't have a new site ready and I ain't doin' things the old way no more.

There is a plethora of pay services that you can use as well as internet searches. By going to the LINKS page, you will find most of my resources.

Submissions are gathered from a variety of sources including Internet sites, word-of-mouth, email submissions to the webmaster, publications, etc. Every effort is made to verify the information but this is a free site and maintained in our "free time." We depend on our users to share information with us. Still, it is amazing that many competitions will continue to seem like they�re accepting submissions (and even accept your fees) but they no longer exist. This is a reference tool, not the playwriting competition bible. Desktop References for the E-Merging Playwright
