The DGF Fellows program 2024


Deadline: April 19, 2024 11:59 PM 
Or after they have received 350 submissions

They have reached their limit.

In order to be eligible for the NYC Fellowship Fellows must:
  • Be 18 years of age or older.
  • Reside in the NYC tri-state area and able attend each monthly meeting. 

The DGF Fellows program is a year-long New York City-based intensive for professional dramatists who are looking to develop their existing work at the next level of their careers. The Fellows program is a free program hosted by the Dramatists Guild Foundation, designed to eliminate historical barriers of entry for many emerging dramatists.

This cohort of playwrights, composers, lyricists, librettists, and bookwriters will work together under the guidance and leadership of prominent program chairs to develop their current work in pursuit of further development and production.

This year, the program will work as an accelerator program for dramatists with existing works still in their revision process. Within the structure of the program is a uniquely successful format of partnering playwrights and musical theater writers during the learning process. Fellows who are selected will receive a $5,000 scholarship, access to career resources, and the opportunity to partner with several arts organizations.

Additionally, the program provides its Fellows with one-on-one mentoring from accomplished professionals in the field who help them hone their process, find their unique voice, and revise and edit existing work ready for development. At the end of the program, each Fellow will have an opportunity to participate in a presentation of their work for top theater professionals.

Please note: In keeping our promise of transparency, please be aware that applications for the 2024-2025 DGF Playwriting Fellowship will close at 350 submissions or on April 19th 2024, whichever happens first. This will allow us to make a decision on applications in a timely manner. We look forward to reading your applications. A virtual info session will be held on April 4th for anyone interested in learning more about the fellowship before applying.
