If you're an emerging Asian American writer based in New York, get ready for a big hug. We're excited to announce the call for two separate fellowships tailor-made for you.
You may already know about our Open City Fellowship, now in its fourth year, which gives five writers the opportunity to write and publish short-form and long-form narrative nonfiction on the vibrant immigrant communities of New York City.
This year we're excited to announce a totally new fellowship: The Margins Fellowship, an all new opportunity for three emerging creative writers (fiction, poetry, creative nonfiction), aged thirty and under, to establish a home for their writing and a space to develop their careers.
All of our Fellows will receive $5,000, access to the AAWW space, publishing opportunities in our magazines, free workshops, and more. The Margins Fellows also receive residencies at the Millay Colony for the Arts, an innovative seven-acre artists retreat space at the former house and gardens of poet Edna St. Vincent Millay. All fellows will serve as writers-in-residence with our online magazines, which have published Chang-rae Lee, Jessica Hagedorn, Ashok Kondabolu, Sarah Gambito, Jad Abumrad, and been linked to by The New York Times, Wall Street Journal, NPR, and The New Inquiry.
The deadline is Friday, May 16, by 11 pm. All the links you need are here:
