Become a DG Affiliate

The Dramatists Guild of America invites you to join us as a Dramatists Guild Affiliate.

The Guild is the national organization dedicated to protecting and promoting the rights and interests of those who write for the American theatre — composers, librettists, lyricists, and playwrights. Founded in 1919 by a small group of Broadway playwrights, the Guild has since grown into an internationally recognized organization with members around the world.

What does it mean to be an Affiliate?

It’s a sign to writers (and patrons) that you share our respect for the central role of dramatists in the theatre. That you honor the Dramatists Bill of Rights, support the Playwrights Welcome initiative and open your doors to the DG a couple of times a year as a space to build community.

Thanks for standing up for dramatists. Let us know how we can stand up for you!
