Opportunities

For years, busy playwrights have relied on the Playwrights’ Center for our extensive, robust, continually updated collection of playwriting opportunities. This database of opportunities is updated almost every day and contains information on contests, theaters looking for scripts, publication opportunities, fellowships, and more.

The opportunities board is a benefit of Playwrights’ Center membership. If you want access to hundreds of opportunities like the ones you see below—as well as a host of other benefits—become a member today!
