ATLANTA: Four New Writers' Group Workshop Sessions

January 18 2020 / 10:00 AM - 01:00 PM

Atlanta Metro members are invited to take part in a new four-session DG Writers Group Winter Workshop. Sessions will be held from 10am through 1pm on Saturdays January 4, January 18, February 1, and February 8 at the home of Atlanta Regional Rep, Pamela Turner, located in the Druid Hills/Emory University area.

Participants must be a current member of the Dramatists Guild, and must register for each date separately using this Eventbrite registration form.

We will cross-check your membership status alongside your registration, and it will be cancelled automatically if you are not a current member of the Dramatists Guild.

The deadline to apply for the Writers Group is December 30, 2019. There is room for up to nine Dramatists Guild members (any category) on a first come, first served basis. Preference is given to those who can attend all of the sessions. The agenda for each week will include work sharing and feedback as well as prompts for some companionable writing and discovery. One of the weeks will include a special guided writing experience. Participants must be actively writing over the period of the workshop and ready to participate fully in our sessions.

To apply go to the Eventbrite registration form to secure a space (register for each date separately), and then also please send the following information to

  • Name, preferred email, best phone and/or text contact;
  • Note of any session you may be unable to attend;
  • Creative category (playwright, composer, etc.) and/or type of project working on now (i.e., play, musical, solo show, etc.).


Meeting address will be sent with application confirmations. DG members outside the Atlanta Metro area are welcome as long as they can attend regularly.
