The Dramatists Guild of America is the membership association of playwrights, librettists, composers, and lyricists writing for the stage in the United States.
Since its establishment in 1919, the mission of the Guild has been to provide its members with education, advocacy, opportunity, and community. The Guild carries out its mission by: maintaining, for use by its members, a contract that is applicable to first-class productions in the United States; formulating other forms of model contracts and offering business advice to its members, including information about industry standards, copyright, and free expression; promoting and protecting the interests of authors in their works, including their rights of property, artistic integrity and compensation, and the conditions under which those works are created and presented; working with theatrical institutions, schools, governmental agencies, nonprofits, and commercial entities, to educate them on the rights that dramatic writers have in their works; creating programs and publications to educate dramatic writers, in order to help them develop their craft, enhance their understanding of the theater business, and expand their professional opportunities; and speaking out as an organization, and through its individual members, on issues which affect the role of dramatic authors in the theatre and in society in general.
The Commonground is a series of monthly events held in New York City for artists across disciplines to meet their creative soulmates. It operates on the belief that fostering great creative partnerships leads to the creation of great art, and that great art is a service to all. We seek to eliminate barriers-to-entry and increase the breadth of exposure artists have to like-minded collaborators.
