This program offers eight established non-fiction writers an opportunity to develop a major essay, memoir, or feature article. Writers are encouraged to explore new ideas in journalism, or to work on a culturally relevant piece that might otherwise be difficult to complete. In addition to a $3,000 commission, successful applicants will also receive financial assistance to cover the program fee, accommodation, meals, and travel costs.
Self-directed Writing Residencies and other Literary Arts Program available.
