Dan Cronin is a third year MFA Candidate in the UI Nonfiction Writing Program. Before Iowa, Dan worked in online media, TV, and documentary film in New York and Los Angeles. As a student, he was elected Student Ambassador of the Nonfiction Writing Program and he co-hosts Anthology, a reading series featuring writers from the NWP, Iowa Writers’ Workshop, and Literary Translation program.

About the Englert Theatre Nonfiction Fellowship:
The fellowship is designed to support one writer studying in the UI Nonfiction Writing Program who will attend Englert events and produce work inspired by their experiences. The fellow will publish one full work or excerpt in our playbill magazine, Stages, and present one public reading and talk. In addition to free attendance to Englert events, the fellow will also receive an honorarium and an open seat at MERGE Iowa City to work near the theater.
