Playwriting, Artist Diploma


Lila Acheson Wallace American Playwrights Program

Under the direction of Marsha Norman and David Lindsay-Abaire, the Drama Division Playwrights program offers one-year, tuition free, graduate-level fellowships for up to four writers. In addition to weekly seminars with the program directors, Playwriting fellows are invited to participate with acting students and Drama faculty in poetry classes, theater history and literature lectures, and a variety of special events. An Alexander Technique class is one of the courses specifically designed for the playwrights, and actor-playwright-director collaborations are planned. Selected playwrights may be invited to continue their studies through a second academic year, thereby completing a total of 52 credits for the two-year fellowship period and earning an Artist Diploma in Playwriting.

Room and board are not included, but a modest stipend is provided by the Lecomte du Nouy Foundation in honor of the distinguished French scientist and philosopher.
