Fellowship Opportunity for Writers

November 5, 2009

The deadline is fast approaching for the writing Fellowships here at the Fine Arts Work Center in Provincetown, MA.

No degree is required for a Fellowship, but we have found that students who are about to finish or have recently finished graduate or undergraduate writing programs are often in search of opportunities like the Work Center Fellowship.

Details about the Winter Fellowship at the Fine Arts Work Center in Provincetown, MA

For the last forty years, the Fine Arts Work Center in Provincetown, MA, has run the largest and longest residency Fellowship in the United States for emerging visual artists and writers. Artists who have not had significant recognition for their work and writers who have not yet published a book with significant distribution are welcome to apply. Fellows receive a seven month stay (October 1-May 1) at the Work Center and a $650 monthly stipend. Fellows do not pay or work in exchange for their fellowships in any way. Fellows are chosen based on the strength and promise of their work. Former Visual Arts Fellows include Ellen Gallagher, Jack Pierson, Lisa Yuskavage, Angela Dufresne, Geoffrey Chadsey, and Lamar Peterson. Former Writing Fellows have won every major national award in writing including the National Book Award and six Pulitzer Prizes. The list of former Fellows includes Denis Johnson, Louise Glück, Jhumpa Lahiri, and Yusef Komunyakaa.

The postmark deadline for the 2010-11 Writing Fellowships is December 1, 2009.

2010-2011 Visual Arts Fellowship applicants may apply online beginning December 1, 2009. Online submissions must be received by midnight February 1, 2010. FAWC will accept slide applications for one more year. Applicants submitting slides, must have their applications postmarked by February 1, 2010.
