Writers Alliance Grants
DGF’s new Writers Alliance Grants demonstrate our enhanced efforts to get funds directly in the hands of writers while continuing a tradition of supporting nonprofit theaters with fair and equitable practices.
In addition to funding new work, DGF has partnered with the Dramatists Guild of America to change the national conversation about how writers are treated by the institutions that produce their work.
Writers Alliance Grants are awarded both to nonprofit theaters and to writers in celebration of working relationships that align deeply with DGF core values. The writer is one whose work pushes boundaries and shows tremendous promise. The theater, which is either currently or slated to work with that writer, is one that holds itself to superlative ethical standards in supporting the livelihoods and careers of writers.
Applicants will be scored on their contracts with writers and the artistic merit of the project for which they are requesting funding.
Thank you for your interest in DGF’s Writers Alliance Grants. Per the feedback of previous applicants, we are currently reevaluating the Writers Alliance Grants. As such, application for this program have been postponed until further notice. We understand this may come as an inconvenience, as October historically has been the typical application month. We appreciate your patience and look forward to more exciting updates to come.
