This edition of The Dramatist is an in-depth examination of Craft and Career. According to The Dramatist Editor Joey Stocks, this theme was inspired by the confines of the pandemic. "Since so many of us are still at home," wrote Stocks in his Editor's Note, "we thought we’d shift the conversation back to some basics of writing." These basics include Roundtables on Native and Indigenous Structure and Dramaturgy (moderated by Rhiana Yazzie), on Poets & Playwrights (moderated by Idris Goodwin), and on Stage Directions (moderated by Douglas Post). And Stephen Schwartz gets the Last Word with a brief personal essay that addresses the emotional side of an author's copyright.
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.
