Writers Residency Grant Applications are now Open!

The Writers Residency Grants provide $500-$2,000 supplemental funds to not-for-profit NAMT members to work with writers on developing a new musical. The musical can be at any stage of development, with priority given to early-stage projects, up to and including a staged reading. The project can happen either at the member theatre or off-site as long as the writers and the theatre are both actively involved in the development process.

Applications are due December 3, 2022.
