About the Group

Nashville Playwrights is an informal group of local writers, including those who are just testing the waters as well as experienced playwrights and local supporters. All skill levels are welcome. The group was started as a way for us to meet other local writers and share any work we have in development, find ways to bring scripts to readings, and launch local productions.


Nashville Playwrights works closely with the Dramatists Guild of America, a national organization dedicated to promoting the vitality and vibrancy of the theatre by asserting the dramatist as its driving artistic force, advocating for their rights and working to create opportunities so that every playwright can realize their dream, take pride in their work and enjoy the respect they deserve.
