About the Program
The Writing Fellows Program is at the heart of what we do—helping writers write. Four promising playwrights will receive nine months of resources, readings, and feedback – designed to craft and complete a single new work. Our season of creative development is tailored to meet each individual writer’s professional goals with development opportunities in two broad categories: new play development and professional development.

Fellows work one-on-one with our artistic director and staff to bring their play from rough draft to a production-ready. Monthly group meetings allow fellows to discuss and revise their work in a collaborative, motivating setting. Fellows also attend meetings with industry professionals designed to provide them with a widened network of resources and help build their professional careers.

Finalists for the program will be interviewed in the early summer and final selections will be announced in September.

What We’re Looking For
Above all, we look for dedicated early-career writers who crave a long-term, rigorous dramaturgical process. We value intellectual curiosity, evocative language and the contemplation of big unanswerable questions; stories that embrace the complexity of life and demonstrate an understanding of the possibilities of dramaturgical structure.
