Writing Fellowships at the Fine Arts Work Center


We know some of the writers that read our blog are always looking for fellowships and grants and the like. So here’s one from the Fine Arts Work Center in Provincetown, Massachusetts. Deadline is December 1 to apply:

Since 1968, the Fine Arts Work Center in Provincetown has run the largest and longest residency Fellowship in the United States for emerging writers. Writers who have not yet published a full-length book of creative work are welcome to apply. Fellows receive a seven-month stay (October 1 – April 30) at the Work Center and a $750 monthly stipend. Fellows do not pay or work in exchange for their Fellowships in any way. Fellows are chosen based on the excellence of their work. Former writing Fellows – nearly all of whom came here before the publication of their first books – have won every major national award in writing including the National Book Award and seven Pulitzer Prizes.
