About The Englert Theatre Nonfiction Writing Fellowship
Founded in 2019, The Nonfiction Fellowship was created in partnership with the University of Iowa Nonfiction Writing Program to support one writer currently in the program by providing working space close to the theater and allowing access to the arts. Recipients receive complimentary tickets to all Englert events as well as an open seat at MERGE co-working space in downtown Iowa City.
At the conclusion of the fellowship, the author’s work is featured in the Englert’s playbill magazine, Stages, and at a public reading and discussion at The Englert.
