Lila Acheson Wallace American Playwrights Program

Under the direction of Marsha Norman and David Lindsay-Abaire, the Drama Division Playwrights program offers tuition-free, graduate-level fellowships for up to four writers each year. Tanya Barfield will join David Lindsay-Abaire as co-director of the program starting July 2020 when Marsha Norman steps down from the position.  In addition to weekly seminars with the program directors, Playwriting fellows are invited to participate with acting students and Drama faculty in classes, community meetings with guest speakers, and a variety of special events. An Alexander Technique class is one of the courses specifically designed for the playwrights, and there are many opportunities for actor-playwright-director collaboration. 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.

NOTE: Important statistics and disclosure information on all non-degree diploma programs are available on the Juilliard Web site.
