Open page of The Dramatist against a red background

The Dramatists Diary has been a continuous member service since 1964. It is a record of member achievements and is printed in six issues of The Dramatist magazine each year. Most Diary listings are self-reported and are usually printed within three to four months from the reporting date. These are listings of past achievements only and do not function as advertisements for upcoming events. If the listing you report is older than twelve months, it will not be accepted or printed in The Dramatist.
