Marian Treger Fellowship

Female artists (fiction, screenwriting, visual art) with chronic health conditions or disabilities are eligible for a free two-week residency with $400 stipend in Fall 2025 (September through December)

Marian was a writer, screenwriter, and visual artist whose profound health challenges interfered with her ability to fully immerse herself in the creative world. As an undergraduate, Marian was a passionate fiction writer who turned her talents to screenwriting in her 20s and won a Samuel Goldwyn Writing Award while pursuing her master’s at UCLA. When she became sick with chronic fatigue syndrome she was unable to continue her career in screenwriting. Nevertheless, her creative spirit endured, finding new ways to manifest itself. As energy and health allowed, she cartooned, drew, made collages, became a jeweler, and wrote short fiction and memoirs. Marian Treger’s lifelong friends collaborated to create this fellowship in honor of Marian’s unstoppable multifaceted creativity.
