The Washington Speechwriters Roundtable is a casual alliance of speechwriters in the Washington, D.C. area who are interested in professional camaraderie, sharpening skills, sharing resources, and exchanging war stories. Our members pen the orations of politicians, corporate and association executives, military leaders, federal officials, and university presidents. Some work as freelancers and communications consultants. We gather for brown bag lunches and happy hours every couple of months at various locations in Washington, DC. Our members and others frequently pass on information about openings for speechwriter positions, which the Roundtable passes on to those on our mailing list.
If you are a professional speechwriter, consider joining our Roundtable. To request membership, send us an email to this address: washspeech (at) gmail (dot) com and include the following information: your name, occupation, title, employer, postal mailing address, email address, how you heard about us, a short paragraph explaining your speechwriting experience (for whom you've written, in what capacity, etc) and why you'd like to join. We reserve the right to limit membership.
