The Young Dramatists Issue 2023: A Guide to Help Aspiring Writers Become Professional Artists

View our Young Dramatists Resources webpage!

The first of its kind, Young Dramatists 2023 Edition 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.

In this special issue, Co-Executive Director Emmanuel Wilson offers readers insight into what it means to become a professional playwright, composer, lyricist, or librettist; a trio of young dramatists has the chance to pick the brains of Kristen Anderson-Lopez, Robert Lopez, and Stephen Schwartz; and ten of our members explain the significance of the Dramatist’s Bill of Rights. Also sprinkled throughout this edition are letters of encouragement from dramatists across the country.
