DGF Fellows is open to playwrights and musical theater writers who have participated in an organized theatrical workshop within the last ten years, have participated in a graduate program in theatrical writing within the last five years, or have comparable experience, such as one or more professional productions. Musical theater writers may apply as individuals or in teams of up to three collaborators. Playwrights may only apply as individuals.
Admitted playwrights and musical theater writers will receive a stipend, and meet twice a month in NYC to share progress on their pieces and receive feedback from Program Chairs, guest artists, and the Fellows class.
FELLOWS APPLICATIONS WILL NOW STAY OPEN UNTIL
