Literary Arts will award nine fellowships in the amount of $3,500. One of these fellowships is specifically for a writer of color. In addition, Literary Arts will award two Oregon Literary Career fellowships in the amount of $10,000. One of these fellowships is specifically for a writer of color.
Oregon Literary Fellowships are intended to help Oregon writers at all stages of their career initiate, develop, or complete literary projects in poetry, fiction, literary nonfiction, drama, and young readers’ literature. Fellowships are also awarded to support Oregon’s independent publishers and small presses that demonstrate a commitment to literary publishing.
Fellowships are merit based, and are determined by out-of-state judges. There is no charge to apply. Many Oregon Literary Fellowship recipients go on to become Oregon Book Awards finalists.
