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 fiction should have a novel or short story collection published by an academic or commercial publisher. Self-published titles are not considered eligible. Novellas are eligible for scholarship applications, but not for fellowships. We will accept fellowship applicants with books in press, but only if the book is in publication by the time of the Conference.

Please mail two hard copies of the book you are applying with to the Sewanee Writers' Conference / The University of the South / 735 University Ave. / Sewanee, TN 37383–1000. Please send two hard copies of the same book.

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 on a fellowship once and on a traditional scholarship once in any particular genre.
