Fellowship Award Eligibility
The Conference offers a limited number of fellowships on a competitive basis. Fellowships cover tuition, room, and board. Fellows are responsible for their own travel costs. Fellowship applicants in nonfiction must have a published nonfiction book. Chapbooks are eligible for scholarship applications, but not for fellowships. Self-published titles are not eligible. We will accept fellowship applicants with books in press, but only if the book is published by the time of the Conference.
If you would like to be considered for a scholarship or contributor position should you not receive a fellowship, you must submit a separate scholarship application or contributor application in addition to the fellowship application. Writers can only attend the Conference once on a fellowship in any particular genre.
