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 111 full fellowships and offered 121 partial awards to fellowship finalists and semifinalists—almost 100% of which have gone to students from traditionally underserved communities—and all together these students have saved over $49,000 in tuition.

We strongly encourage writers of color, LGBTQ+ writers, women writers, writers with disabilities and writers from other underserved communities to apply and self-identify on their applications. Applications are due Sunday, May 16 (11:59 PM EDT). Fellowship decisions will be announced on May 30.
