A weekly in-person writers' group for Black dramatists living and working in Atlanta, hosted by Sherry Shephard-Massat.


Black dramatists in the Atlanta Region are invited to participate in a weekly writers group (tertulia) during the months of September and October. These open sessions will take place every Saturday from 10am to 1pm Eastern. Writers will be asked to bring no more than ten pages of a stage piece that they'd like to share so that other attendees can offer feedback and support.


Guidelines and information for participation:


  • This is an affinity space, so we ask that you do not register for this particular writers' group if you are not a Black dramatist in order to create a protected space for those involved (please see the DG Event Calendar for all other upcoming DG events if you do not fall within this affinity);


  • The Moderator of this event is requiring that all participants be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 before being in attendance;


  • This event will be held at a private residence in Sandy Springs, GA, and the exact address will be sent to you prior to the event;


  • Each weekly writers' group is limited to 10 spaces, so we ask that you please cancel or let us know if you will no longer be able to attend so that your registration may be released to someone else who might be interested in joining;


  • Each weekly writers' group is free, and you are welcome to register to one or as many as you'd like;


  • Participants each week will set guidelines and group practices for feedback sharing of creative material. Please be respectful of one another when giving feedback. Feedback shared is not an endorsement or representative opinion of the Dramatists Guild. See the DG Code of Conduct for Community Spaces if you are interested in learning more about expectations for behavior in shared spaces.
