Description

The Playwrights' Center Jerome Many Voices Fellowships are awarded annually to significantly benefit early-career writers of color with previous playwriting experience and/or training. Both Many Voices Fellowships will provide a $18,000 stipend and $2,000 in play development funds, and other benefits. The Fellowship will also focus more heavily on building connections with theater leaders and companies in the Twin Cities and nationwide. The Many Voices Mentorship is awarded to one Minnesota-based beginning playwright of color. The mentorship focuses on the nuts and bolts of playwriting through a curated package of writing and development services intended to aid the participant toward the completion of a play script. The mentorship provides a $2,000 stipend as well as free access to over $1,500 in services designed to introduce beginning playwrights to the craft of playwriting. These services include a staged reading with professional actors, two six-week classes taught by leading playwriting professionals, an array of one-night seminars, and a two-year Playwrights' Center membership. The mentorship recipient attends quarterly meetings with Many Voices Program Coordinator Christina Ham as well as scheduled consultations with other Playwrights' Center artistic staff.
