DCA is now accepting applications for two available Emerging Writers
Fellowships to the "Fresh Terrain" festival being held Jan. 23-26 at the
University of Texas in Austin. DCA also is looking for mentors to represent
DCA at the festival.

Applications for fellows must be received by Wed. Nov. 13 at 5 p.m. EST. DCA
members interested in serving as mentors also should notify DCA of their
interest by Wed. Nov. 13 at 5 p.m. EST.

The festival, an interdisciplinary event that will encompass dance, theater,
music and visual arts, is being presented by U-Texas and P.S. 122 in New
York. In keeping with the interdisciplinary theme, DCA members will be
working with their counterparts from the theater, music and visual arts
critic associations.

For this festival, P.S. 122 and U-Texas are bringing together individual
artists and groups to
work on new collaborative pieces. Everything presented will be a new work.
Groups and individual artists participating include Ann Carlson, Universes,
Big Art Group (Caden Manson), Rude Mechanicals (Austin), Da Da Kamera
(Daniel McIvor, Canada), New York City Players (Richard Maxwell), and Diane
Szeinblum (Argentina).

Mentors would be expected to review writing portfolios, and working with
fellows on reviews they produce during the festival. Fellows will be
attending performances and writing reviews for group and individual
discussions with mentors. Time will also be made for mentors and fellows to
attend speakers and panels at the University of Texas symposium that is
accompanying the festival.

DCA will pay for travel and lodging expenses (up to $500 each) for up to two
DCA fellows and for up to two DCA mentors. Fellowship winners must agree to
write about the conference for the DCA quarterly newsletter.

Any DCA members intersted in serving as mentors should e-mail a statement of
interest to kcollins@app.com by Wed. Nov. 13 at 5 p.m. EST.

Fellowship applicants should be emerging dance writers with less than five
years of experience in dance writing. Applicants should submit a bio or
resume, as well as a statement
of not more than 50 words explaining why they would like to attend this
conference and what they hope to get from the experience. All applications
must be received by Wed. Nov. 13 at 5 p.m. EST.

Applications should be e-mailed to:
kcollins@app.com or sent by regular mail to:

Karyn D. Collins
c/o Asbury Park Press
3601 Rt. 66
Neptune, NJ 07754

All fellows and mentors will be selected by the DCA Board.

Thank you.
