PEN Center USA is Looking For ‘Emerging Voices Fellows’

thinkbigPEN Center USA has opened the admissions process for its fellowship program. The Emerging Voices Fellowship is a literary fellowship that is designed to help launch literary careers for writers that lack the tools and access to do so on their own.

Writers can find applications at this link. The deadline for submissions is August 11, 2014. Fellows that are selected will earn a $1,000 grant and will participate in an eight month professional mentorship program. This includes courses donated by UCLA Writers’ Extension Program, being a part of hosted Author Evenings with authors and several public readings in Los Angeles.

Fellows will be paired with mentors. In the past, Sherman Alexie, Aimee Bender, Chris Abani, Héctor Tobar, Ron Carlson, Jerry Stahl, Susan Straight and Harryette Mullen have all served as mentors.
