Apply for the Emerging Writer Fellowship

The application for GrubStreet's 2021 Emerging Writer Fellowship is now open. To meet the growing needs of our community, we’re excited to expand the number of fellowships we’re offering this year by adding a third award.

The Emerging Writer Fellowship aims to develop new, exciting voices by providing three writers per year tuition-free access to GrubStreet’s classes and Muse & the Marketplace conferences. Over the course of one year, each Emerging Writer Fellow will attend a combination of seminars and multi-week courses of their choosing, bookended by attendance at both the 2021 and the 2022 Muse & the Marketplace conference, in order to enhance their understanding of craft and the publishing industry.

This fellowship is open to anyone 18 and older who demonstrates a passion for writing, a commitment to developing their writing abilities, and financial need. The fellowship specifically aims to assist writers in need of financial assistance in reaching their writing goals. We particularly encourage writers of color, ethnic minorities, those who identify as LGBTQ+, people with disabilities, and other members of communities historically underrepresented by the literary community to apply. 

Although all of our programming is currently taking place virtually, we hope that fellows will be able to join us in-person for classes and events later in 2021 and into 2022. Priority will be given to applicants who will be able to join us in Boston when it's safe to do so.

Don’t wait! Apply before the deadline on Monday, February 22nd at 11:59PM EST.
