Brooklyn Poets Fellowships

We award fellowships to promising students in need to enroll in a workshop, manuscript consultation, or retreat 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 submission period. Applicants are limited to one workshop/consultation fellowship and one retreat fellowship lifetime.

Our fall fellowship application period is now closed. We’ll be accepting applications for our winter–spring 2020 workshop season in January—check back then!
