2015-2016 WRITING FELLOWSHIPS
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 this one. Fellowships are reserved for “emerging” writers in the crucial early stages of their careers; writers who have published a full-length book of creative work (or have a contract to do so) are not eligible.
Each year, we award five Fellowships to fiction writers and five Fellowships to poets.
We’d be grateful for your help in passing on word of this unique opportunity. To download a poster, please click HERE.
If you have questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.

Writing Fellowships at the Fine Arts Work Center in Provincetown, Massachusetts
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. Former writing Fellows include Denis Johnson, Louise Glück, Jhumpa Lahiri, Michael Cunningham, and Yusef Komunyakaa.
