Literary Arts is pleased to announce the newly established Writers of Color Fellowship, as part of the Oregon Book Awards & Fellowships program.
The goal of the Writers of Color Fellowship is to promote perspectives from a variety of cultural, ethnic and racial backgrounds, and encourage diverse writers to apply for fellowships. All applications for the Writers of Color fellowship will also be considered for an Oregon Literary Fellowship.
Writers who apply for an Oregon Literary Fellowship who wish to have their application considered for the Writers of Color Fellowship will indicate this on an addendum to the application form. All fellowship applicants submit an application form and a writing sample. Complete guidelines are on our website. There is no charge to apply.
Deadline for applications:
All applications are due in the Literary Arts office by June 26, 2015. Fellowship recipients will be announced in January 2016.
Applications will be reviewed by a panel of out-of-state judges, except for young readers literature and drama, which each have a single judge. The judges are instructed to use the writing sample as the basis of their decisions for the selection of fellowship recipients. The judges change each year, and Literary Arts strives to select judges that represent diverse communities.
