PEN Center USA’s Emerging Voices Fellowship aims to provide writers, who lack access, the tools they would need to launch a literary career. The application period is now open to apply for the 2016 Emerging Voices Fellowship. The deadline is August 10, 2015. Over the course of eight months, each Emerging Voices Fellow participates in a professional mentorship; hosted Author Evenings with prominent local authors; editors and agents; a series of master classes focused on genre; a voice class; courses donated by UCLA Writers’ Extension Program; three public readings; and a $1,000 stipend. Fellows have been paired with prominent authors including Ron Carlson, Harryette Mullen, Chris Abani, Ramona Ausubel, Meghan Daum, and Sherman Alexie. Please find attached information on the fellowship, and here’s a link to the application: https://penusa.org/programs/emerging-voices.
