Fellows Feature: 2012/13 Van Lier Fellows, Pt. 2 - Dream Collaborators

May 9, 2013

In early 2012, three writers were selected by three outside adjudicators to be Van Lier Fellows: Jackie Sibblies Drury, Brian Otaño and Charise Castro Smith. For the past 18-months, under the supervision of Van Lier Coordinator, Kristoffer Diaz, they have been in-residence at New Dramatists developing their work and working closely with mentor playwrights. In conjunction with the upcoming Van Lier Festival, in a series of brief segments, Kris engages the Fellows in conversation about influences, dream collaborators and the plays on which they are currently working. This is part two of three.

The Van Lier Fellowships are made possible by the Edward & Sally Van Lier Fund at the New York Community Trust.
