About the Program
The Playwrights Horizons Theatrical Fellowship Program offers excellent practical experience in training for a career in the arts and affords an opportunity to learn from some of the top professionals in the American theater. Because our fellows are fully integrated in the day-to-day life of the organization, a fellowship at Playwrights Horizons offers significantly marketable experience in one’s chosen field. We are proud of the fact that many alumni have gone on to become some of the most active directors, writers, composers, and arts administrators in the country. In addition, many current staff members are former fellows, including our Artistic Director, Tim Sanford.
