Since the program’s inception in 1986, Nicholl Fellowships have been awarded to over 120 talented new screenwriters. During the ensuing years, these Nicholl fellows have written movies, television episodes, novels, non-fiction books and more.

To celebrate its 25th Anniversary, the Nicholl Fellowships has gathered updates on what many of the Nicholl fellows are doing now.
