Please join the Dramatists Guild in welcoming three newly elected Regional Representatives!

The Carolinas
Nichole M. Palmer
Succeeding Jacqueline Lawton

Hello North and South Carolina! I’m so excited to embark on this next journey with you as your Dramatists Guild Regional Representative. We’re a diverse group of dramatists who actively engage in new work development across our states. We seek out opportunities to push new voices into the forefront of our various communities. And, we’re telling stories that engage, inspire, educate, entertain, and challenge our audiences to see the world through new perspectives. This is why we became dramatists. It is my hope to build on this foundation that our past leader Jacqueline E. Lawton, and our returning Ambassadors Triza Cox (SC) and Erica McGee (NC), worked tirelessly to shape. Over the next three years, I’d like to see us continue to develop and produce new work, engage in dialogue about our craft and industry, and open doors to diverse voices ready to be heard. Lastly, I welcome your ideas as well as news on what’s happening in your communities. Please email me any updates, questions, and wish lists.

Succeeding Les Hunter

I am proud to have been given the opportunity to represent Ohio as the Dramatists Guild Regional Rep. The Reps who have preceded me have been dedicated and I hope to also contribute to the service of our playwrights, composers, lyricists, and librettists. My role will be to listen and support. 
I know there will continue to be some limitations on our in-person visits and connections, but please know that I am a comfortable virtual journeyman. I want to hear from you about your work, and any ways that we might support you in the coming years.  There are ideas out there that I haven’t even conceived, and I want to hear them and discover which of these new ideas can effectively serve our region. Please contact me at

I hope to meet you soon.

Succeeding Elaine Romero

We are living in a time where isolation and disconnection feel too common, even as we stay digitally connected and do our best to navigate the cautious, yet burgeoning reawakening of live performing arts. I am excited to serve as our Southwest Regional Rep during this time of change and hope. I will work to build connections and community throughout our vast landscape, and raise awareness for our theatres about the playwrights, composers, lyricists, and librettists who make up our Region. I’m ready to get to work. If you have any questions or ideas on how the Guild could serve you and your community, please reach out!
