About the Tutterow Fellowship

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. Two-thirds of each cohort are reserved for historically un-represented voices: writers of color, LGBTQIA, differently-abled, and/or neuro-divergent.

The Tutterow Fellowship is named after the late Russ Tutterow, the first and long-time artistic director of Chicago Dramatists. The program honors Mr. Tutterow’s commitment to identifying and nurturing talent that might not otherwise get the opportunity to grow.  This program is made possible by the generous support of the Joyce Foundation.
