This edition of The Dramatist explores the theme of age. Amy Crider moderates a Roundtable on Emerging After 50, while Adam Gwon moderates a Roundtable on Writing for Young(er) Audiences, Marc Acito profiles the writing team of Kander and  Pierce, and Chisa Hutchinson writes about Getting a Word in Agewise as a DGF Traveling Master.

Brown offers the first part of her Primer on Literary Executors. Finally, Kirsten Childs shares some of her creative Inspiration, Karen Hartman answers questions about  The Craft, and Emily Mann explains "Why I Joined the Guild." 

THE DRAMATIST is made possible by funding from the Council of the Dramatists Guild of America, a generous gift from the JOHN LOGAN FOUNDATION through a grant from the Dramatists Guild Foundation, and contributions from Guild members LIKE YOU.
