|About the David Charles Horn Foundation
The David Charles Horn Foundation was established in 2005 by Francine Horn, David’s wife. David Horn was the publisher and CEO of Here & There, the preeminent international forecasting and reporting publication serving the fashion industry. He was a man of vision, discipline, and grace, whose insight forever changed the world of fashion and the lives of those around him. In keeping with Mr. Horn’s lifetime commitment to the written word, the David Charles Horn Foundation seeks to honor his aspirations and achievements by supporting new initiatives in the literary and dramatic arts.
The David Charles Horn Foundation is the sole financial sponsor of the Yale Drama Series. The Yale Drama Series is an annual international competition for emerging playwrights. The winner is awarded the David Charles Horn Prize of $10,000, publication of the winning play by Yale University Press and a staged reading at Lincoln Center Theater in New York City.
