Announcing the Teaching Fellowship for Black Writers
We’re thrilled to announce that applications are now open for GrubStreet’s first Teaching Fellowship for Black Writers. This yearlong fellowship provides financial and professional development support to two self-identified Black writers interested in teaching classes, participating in events, and working with our instructors and staff to deepen our curriculum.
Taking place September 2021 through August 2022, the fellowship will include compensation of $20,000, artistic mentorship, and access to the GrubStreet community and the Muse and the Marketplace conference. In time, the program aims to offer sustainable support to Black Writers and create a cohort of fellows who have direct access to GrubStreet resources, classes, and events.
This fellowship is open to writers who self-identify as Black, are 18 or older, are able to work with both adult and teen audiences, and have a passion for expansive pedagogy, curriculum development, and professional growth. Ideal candidates will have some publication and teaching experience. MFAs, a long publishing record, or extensive teaching experience are not requirements to apply, though feel free to tell us if you have any of these things.
Get all the details about the fellowship compensation, teaching load and responsibilities, and how to apply here. The deadline to apply is Tuesday, May 25th, 2021.
