FAWC Invites Applications for Writing Fellowships in Provincetown
Fine Arts Work Center

The Fine Arts Work Center in Provincetown, Massachusetts, is a nonprofit organization dedicated to encouraging the growth and development of emerging visual artists and writers and to restoring the year-round vitality of the historic art colony of Provincetown. The Work Center is internationally known for its acclaimed fellowship residency program, summer workshop program, online writing classes, and MFA program in collaboration with MassArt.

FAWC awards seven-month writing fellowships to five poets and five fiction writers each year from October 1 through April 30. Writing fellows are provided with a private furnished apartment and a monthly stipend of $750. Fellows are required to remain in residence at the Fine Arts Work Center in Provincetown, Massachusetts, during the seven-month fellowship.

To be eligible, applicants must be emerging fiction writers or emerging poets. Those whose works fall between those two categories or employ both may also apply; however, all applicants must either choose "Fiction" or "Poetry" on the application form. The Fine Arts Work Center actively seeks applicants from all backgrounds, and does not discriminate on the basis of race, creed, color, religion, national origin, sex, age, sexual orientation, marital status, ancestry, disability, HIV status, or veteran status.  

There is a $50 application fee due upon submission of the online application.
