In conjunction with our 30th anniversary, Literary Arts will award an additional $30,000 to writers as part of the 2015 Oregon Book Awards & Fellowships program. A total of $59,000 will be granted in 2015 to support, promote, and celebrate Oregon’s writers and publishers.
Applications for the 2015 Oregon Literary Fellowships are due Friday, June 27, 2014. Fellowships are awarded to Oregon writers in Fiction, Nonfiction, Poetry, 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. There is no charge to apply. Recipients are determined by a panel of out-of-state judges. Applications may be mailed via U.S. mail or hand delivered to the Literary Arts office at 925 SW Washington in Portland. Fellowship applications can be found here.
