Fellows

Fellows

 

Applications for the 2018-2019 Fellows class are now closed.

DGF Fellows is a year-long development intensive led by esteemed writers Diana Son (Stop Kiss), Michael Korie (Grey Gardens), Sheri Wilner (Kingdom City), and Laurence O’Keefe (Legally Blonde). Participants spend a year honing their craft while developing full-length pieces, culminating in an industry presentation at an Off-Broadway theater. The program is highly sought after for its successful format of bringing playwrights and musical theater writers together in the learning process.

 

“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
2012 Fred Ebb Award finalist

New Voices

New Voices

 

In April of 2018, DGF launched the pilot of a new in-school education program called New Voices. DGF brought four trained teaching artists, each of whom was formerly a DGF Fellow, into 4th grade classrooms. These artists led the students in the collaborative creation of their own plays, which were then performed for the school by professional actors. It is crucial that young students are given proper access and training in theater to share their stories and learn the power of their own voices.

  • Meet the Fellows: Sam Salmond

    "I write about outsiders and queer people. I want to tell stories about folks who feel alone, oppressed, or forgotten. I hope I give those people a chance to express their individuality, their sense of humor, their weaknesses, and their brilliance. "

  • Meet the Fellows: Riti Sachdeva

    This is the latest in our Meet the Fellows series, where we introduce you to the current class of DGF Fellows. Each of these writers and writing teams have proven themselves to be leaders of the craft whose work we expect to be enjoying for years to come.

    Since its inception in 2000, the DGF Fellows program has provided a home for more than 160 writers. Over the course of this year-long intensive, composers, lyricists, playwrights and bookwriters work with professional mentors, honing their individual processes while developing a full-length piece. Beneficiaries of this rigorous and highly selective fellowship receive stipends, development opportunities, and a foothold in the industry. Alumni include Anna Ziegler (Actually), Rajiv Joseph (Bengal Tiger at the Baghdad Zoo), and Kristen Anderson-Lopez (Academy Award winner, Frozen) among dozens of other vital contemporary theater makers.
