Psychoanalysts Looking for a Few Good Theatre Folk

So much to catch up on! First up is an announcement from The American Psychoanalytic Association regarding its 2009 - 2010 Fellowship Program and its call for theatre folk to apply.

Here's the 411:

APsaA announce 2009 - 2010 Fellowship Program

Special invitation for playwrights, actors, critics, and other theater professionals

The American Psychoanalytic Association (APsaA) is pleased to announce that nominations are now open for the 2009 - 2010 Fellowship Program. APsaA's Fellowship Program seeks outstanding psychiatrists, psychologists, clinical social workers and academics at various levels of training who are curious about how the mind works, who consider psychoanalytic thinking important for the future of their professional disciplines and who are likely to become, or already are, leaders in their fields.

Theater professionals- actors, playwrights, and others- who demonstrate a serious ongoing interest in psychoanalysis and its relationship to their primary field of theater arts are also encouraged to apply. APsaA's Fellowship Program offers an invaluable opportunity to explore the core themes of theater - conflict, motive, passion, and behavior to name a few. Noted playwright and Pulitzer Prize Finalist (Dying City 2008) Christopher Shinn was among the 2006-2007 Fellowship recipients.

Please visit www.apsa.org and click on "Fellowship Program". From there, you will be able to find out more about the program, review eligibility requirements, download an application as well as learn about the benefits of applying to the program and winning a Fellowship.

Application material must be submitted in one packet and be received by Monday, February 9, 2009. For other information about the Fellowship Program, please contact James Guimaraes, Fellowship coordinator, jguimaraes@apsa.org, (212) 752-0450, x12.
