The Tools of the Trade issue of The Dramatist takes a deep dive into the nerdiest aspects of the craft, from “The Great Software Debate,” where playwrights go toe-to-toe discussing their scriptwriting software of choice, to “Old School Tools,” which begins as a talk about pens and turns into much more.
This issue also features a compelling roundtable led by Jay Alan Zimmerman, where composers speak on their software and hardware of choice, as well as a “Ten Questions” double feature with Erika Dickerson-Despenza and Vanessa Severo. Finally, Virginia Ambassador Clyde Santana takes a closer look at The Z, Peter Parnell explores “What Copyright Means to Me,” and Kirsten Childs explains “Why I Joined the Guild.”
