Fellowship: Playwrights Center

| 1 Comment

The Playwrights Center invites writers of color residing in Minnesota to apply for a Many Voices playwriting fellowship.

Made possible by a grant from the Jerome Foundation, Many Voices provides cash grants, education, and opportunities to develop new work with theater professionals. The program is designed to increase cultural diversity in the contemporary theater, both locally and nationally.

Two types of fellowships: To serve writers of different levels of experience, two types of fellowship are offered. Two beginning playwrights (with little or no previous playwriting experience) will receive a $1000 stipend, $250 in development funds, and a structured curriculum of playwriting instruction and dramaturgical support. Three emerging playwrights (with previous playwriting experience and/or training) will receive a $3500 stipend, $1000 of development funding, and dramaturgical support. The program also offers each artist a public showcase opportunity and a one-year Playwrights Center Membership.

To apply: Download and read the application form at; attend the (optional) applicant information session on Wednesday March 11 at 6:30 pm at The Playwrights’ Center; send your application materials via email to by April 3, 2009 (not a postmark deadline; materials to be received by this date).
