The Tutterow Fellowship program honors Russ Tutterow’s commitment to identifying and nurturing talent that might not otherwise get the opportunity to grow – all free of charge. Designed to support the emergent playwright, this two-year fellowship emphasizes training, practice and mentorship. Ideal candidates display significant potential for developing their craft, their voice and their network of collaborators during their fellowship at Chicago Dramatists.
Our goal is to include historically under-represented voices, including writers of color, LGBTQIA, differently-abled, and/or neuro-divergent.
Your donation will support the fellows' comissions and the fees required for putting together their workshops and showcases. By donating today, you are helping provide artists the opportunity to develop and grow by providing them free classes, workshops, and festivals to develop new work.
