The Mid-Career Fellowship is a two-year residency program for a playwright who has demonstrated excellence through a professional career and requires space, time, and resources to sustain that career, and reinvigorate their artistic purpose. The Mid-Career Fellowship includes significant artistic resources, financial support, production and industry advocacy, travel and networking opportunities, and a variety of programmatic and staff support mechanisms that allow the Fellow greater flexibility to write, think, imagine, research, plan, and create.
Fellows receive $40,000 over their two year residency, as well as a $5,000 Opportunity Fund for the purposes of travel, research, or autonomous workshops. These fees are designed as substantial “life-sustaining” support, to provide an opportunity for the playwright to free themself of one or more part-time jobs, and to help them gain career traction and momentum.
The Selection Process
Fellows are selected in two year cycles at the discretion of Lark’s artistic staff.
