 The Young Dramatist Issue: A Guide to Help Aspiring Writers Become Professional Artists

The Young Dramatists Issue of The Dramatist magazine serves as a primer on the business of writing for the theatre. It is the first and only magazine of its kind, geared towards informing and empowering young theatre writers. No matter your age, you're never too young to view yourself as a professional playwright, composer, lyricist, or librettist. 

As DG Co-Executive Director Emmanuel Wilson notes, "a professional is one who becomes competent in a skill by studying a craft, the business of how to sell and manage the byproduct of such craft and engages in the practice of building a career of it." Check out this special issue to discover the significance of The Dramatist’s Bill of Rights, receive encouragement from theatre writers across the country, and more!

The Young Dramatists issue is now shipping to DG members worldwide. It can also be viewed or purchased online via the DG website. In addition, this issue is available for purchase at the Drama Book Shop in New York City, Skylight Books in Los Angeles, East End Books Ptown in Provincetown, or Samuel French Bookstore at the Royal Court Theatre in London.
