The New Jersey Literary Artist Fellowship Showcase
Professional performances of works from New Jersey’s Literary Fellows in Poetry, Prose and Playwriting
The NJ Literary Artist Fellowship Showcase (NJLAFS) features public performances of works from recipients of the NJ State Council on the Arts (NJSCA) Fellowships in poetry, prose, and playwriting. Writers are chosen through a highly competitive national peer panel review process focusing on artistic merit. NJSCA Fellows are some of the best artists working in their genres.
Poets will perform their own works, Prose writers have the option of performing their own work, or having a rehearsed reading with a professional actor, playwrights receive a rehearsed concert reading of their play.
The showcase is a collaboration between the New Jersey State Council on the Arts and Playwrights Theatre of New Jersey. Fellowships are awarded in a project co-sponsored by NJSCA and the Mid-Atlantic Arts Foundation.
