Join Danielle Wirsansky, a DG Ambassador of the Gulf Coast region for the Gulf Coast Theatre Writers Circle. This virtual gathering for dramatists will take place once a month, on the third Tuesday of each month. 


Tuesday, May 16, 2023
EST: 7pm
CST: 6pm
MST: 5pm
PDT: 4pm


We invite all theatre writers, actors, directors, technicians, designers, and more interested in helping to workshop and cultivate new works to join us. Creatives beyond the Gulf Coast region are welcome. It is free and open for all to attend.


The format: dramatists can submit to have up to 10 pages of work read, with several writers having their work read in a single night. These are not professional readings, just a vehicle for dramatists to hear their work read aloud. Participants should be ready to take turns reading and to provide feedback to other dramatists in a respectful manner, should they be interested in receiving it. Writers must be present to have their work read.


To have your work read: interested dramatists should email Danielle before the reading date at with the 10-page piece or excerpt they would like read. There are a limited number of slots available for time, and work will be selected on a first come, first served basis. Please also submit any content warnings you would like to share with audience members. When you submit, please indicate which date you are submitting for.


We ask that participants review the DG Code of Conduct for Community Spaces and be mindful of delivering feedback with care. Feedback from DG volunteers are done so as individuals, and independently of their relationship with the Guild.
