Short Story Incubator Fellowship Applicants

Welcome! Thank you for your interest in the Short Story Incubator.

We strive to locate support for our program participants who need it, and may be able to offer awardees partial to full support, depending on our funding in a given year, and the number of successful applicants. Thanks to the generous support of the Pechet Foundation, we are able to award one or two fellowships in honor of Pauline Scheer.

In order to be considered for one of our fellowships, you will have the opportunity to apply for one at the end of your application for the Incubator. Only one application is necessary to be considered for any of our funding options. Applicants can expect notification via email from the Fellowship Committee at the time of acceptance into the program. While all Short Story Incubator applicants can expect to be notified of their standing by the Short Story Incubator Selection Committee, applicants not accepted into the program will not receive a separate notification from the Fellowship Committee.

Applications for the 2022-2023 Short Story Incubator are now open! Click here to apply.  The application deadline has been EXTENDED to August 8th, 2022, at 11:59pm EST.
