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.

Our summer fellowship application period is now closed. We’ll be accepting applications for our fall workshop season in August—check back then!
