The Before & After Issue Jan/Feb 2020
This edition of The Dramatist is bursting with tips, advice, and industry intel on how to approach the writing process from both sides. Featuring both new and popular archived articles, this issue focuses on information all dramatists should consider before they begin writing and after they finish their draft. After all, as DG Manager of Business Affairs Amy VonMacek notes, "The before is business. The after is business. Art is in the middle." The Before section provides information on Underlying Rights, what to do if you're writing about a Real Person in Your Play, and Contracts 101 on Collaboration. Additionally, Donna Hoke moderates a Roundtable on the marketing and networking that goes beyond submitting your work to open calls. In the After section, Deborah Murad breaks down the Basic Terms of a Production Agreement, David Faux leads a panel on Subsidiary Rights, Ellen Brown recommends Developing a Long Term Plan for Your Literary Papers, and Rachel Lynett moderates a discussion on Playwright's Collectives. Also in this issue, Tony Meneses answers Ten Questions about writing, Audrey Cefaley discusses The Craft, and Georgia Stitt explains "Why I Joined the Guild."
