Two new opportunities for writers at the Writer’s Center, the first for DC-area writers, and the second open to all:
UNDISCOVERED VOICES FELLOWSHIP: CALL FOR APPLICATIONS
The Writer's Center seeks promising writers earning less than $25,000 annually to apply for our undiscovered Voices Fellowship. This fellowship program will provide complimentary writing workshops to the selected applicant for a period of one year, but not to exceed 8 workshop in that year. We expect the selected fellow will use the year to make progress toward a completed manuscript of publishable work. Please see our Web site here for complete information.
EMERGING WRITER FELLOWSHIPS: CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS
The Writer's Center, metropolitan DC's community gathering place for writers and readers, is currently accepting submissions for several competitive Emerging Writer Fellowships. Emerging Writer Fellows will be selected from applicants who have published up to 2 book length- works of prose and up to 3 book-length works of poetry. We welcome submissions from writers of any genre, background, or expererience.
Emerging Writer Fellows will be featured at The Writer's Center as part of our Emerging Writers Reading Series. The readings, to be held on Friday evenings, bring together writers in different genres with a backdrop of live music. The Writer's Center book store will sell titles by the EmergingWriters throughout the season in which they appear. Please see our Web site here for complete information.
