Brooklyn Poets Fellowships

Each workshop season, we award fellowships to promising students in need to take a workshop or manuscript consultation for free. We also award partial fellowships to finalists. Applicants must not be enrolled in a degree program with access to creative writing instruction or have previously published (or had accepted for publication) a book of poems. Additionally, applicants who hold a graduate degree in creative writing (MA/MFA/PhD) will be considered separately for only one fellowship award per season. All applicants are limited to one fellowship lifetime.
