NEW YORK CITY: Lincoln Center Theater (LCT) has established the LCT New Writers in Residence program, which offers writers a no-strings-attached opportunity to develop new work.
“We are so happy to be able to do this,” said artistic director André Bishop in a statement. “All we want to do is to be helpful and supportive of these gifted, young writers.”
The program will be spearheaded by LCT3 artistic director Evan Cabnet and associate director Natasha Sinha. The yearlong residency will offer writers office space and resources. This year’s recipients, chosen by Cabnet and Sinha, are Ngozi Anyanwu, Jocelyn Bioh, Sarah DeLappe, Olivia Dufault, Julia Jarcho, Jason Kim, Phillip Howze, and Jiehae Park.
