Continuous line drawing of hand writing with a pen on paper

For over 100 years, the Dramatists Guild’s goal has been to continually aid playwrights, composers, lyricists, and librettists in protecting their work’s artistic and economic integrity. As a stalwart advocate of better business practices that celebrate the dramatist and, in turn, do not exploit the dramatist, the Guild believes in a theatre rooted in fairness, so that the writer can build a life and a career. But our advocacy goes far beyond contracts and best practices.
