Become a DG Affiliate

The Guild is the only organization dedicated to protecting and promoting the rights and interests of those who write for the theatre — composers, librettists, lyricists, and playwrights. Founded almost a century ago by a small group of Broadway playwrights, the Guild has since grown into an organization of national recognition.

As a Dramatists Guild Affiliate, you’ll be agreeing to work with the respective Regional Representative in your area to provide space for two DG events per year, and you’ll join the Playwrights Welcome program.
