“This experience was an amazing experience for me and I know it is something that I will remember for the rest of my life.”
ESTHER FISHBEIN

“Any chance you can have to meet a seasoned playwright, someone who’s doing what you want to do, is just thrilling.”
Katie Zutter

Carthage College, WI

“To be able to meet people like that, people who are doing work that’s affecting people, impacting other people’s lives. I’m so grateful to have that opportunity, as an artist and as a human being.”

Fellows

Fellows

Bringing together playwrights, composers, lyricists, and bookwriters, the Fellows program provides a unique opportunity for emerging writers to gain professional experience and work with accomplished mentors.

“Fellows was the single most impactful program that I was a part of as an emerging writer...the lessons we all learned from Lynn Ahrens and Stephen Flaherty were immeasurable. We all knew them as remarkable writers but only the lucky few of us who were in the fellowship with them knew that they were extraordinary teachers.”
Kait Kerrigan

2009 Kleban Award recipient
2006 Larson Award recipient

“I was in the Fellows during my first year in New York, and it was wonderful to have a little family of writer friends and mentors…And one of the best perks of the whole thing was the series of visits from veteran writers. Ten of us in a room with Doug Wright or Sarah Ruhl or Terrence McNally, picking the brains of our heroes in an intimate conference room, what could be more awesome?”
Sarah Hammond

2011 Frederick Loewe Award recipient
Resident playwright at New Dramatists

“Being a Fellow opened a lot of doors for me, which I expected. What is more interesting, and perhaps more valuable, is that it also opened my mind to the myriad ways I can be a dramatist and a member of a community.”
Timothy Huang

2013 Jerry Harrington Award recipient
