There’s no how-to book handed to you when you become the editor of The Dramatist. I don’t think it’s an intentional withholding of information; it’s just that no one has ever made one.

So, when I came on board in 2011, I started cobbling together bits of institutional history and how-to from coworkers (especially Tari Stratton and Ralph Sevush), colleagues (especially from Council and Dramatist Committee members) and, mostly, from digging through back issues of this magazine and its predecessor, The Dramatists Guild Quarterly.
