Brooklyn Poets Fellowships

We award fellowships to promising students in need to enroll in a workshop, manuscript consultation, or retreat for free. We also offer partial fellowship awards to finalists and semifinalists. Since the inception of our fellowship program in the fall of 2015, we’ve awarded 159 full fellowships and offered 150 partial awards to fellowship finalists and semifinalists—almost 100% of which have gone to students from historically underserved and marginalized communities—and all together these students have saved over $72,000 in tuition.

We strongly encourage writers from historically underserved and marginalized communities to apply, including (but not limited to) writers of color, LGBTQ+ writers, writers with disabilities and women writers.
