Fellowships to Oregon writers and publishers to support high-quality literary writings and publishing in the genres of poetry, literary nonfiction, fiction, young readers, and drama literature. Writers in the early stages of their career are encouraged to apply in order to develop, initiate or complete literary projects. Priority will be given to publishers that do not receive major support from parent organizations.
Oregon Literary Fellowships for Writers:
Applicants may choose to be considered for several specific Oregon Literary Fellowship awards with additional eligibility requirements, including:
- Women Writers Fellowship: Literary Arts intends this grant to be trans-inclusive
- Writer of Color Fellowship: For self-identified writers of color
- Laurell Swails & Donald Monroe Memorial Fellowships in Fiction: For writers who have been Oregon residents for five full years prior to the application deadline
- Oregon Arts Commission Fellowships: For writers who have been an Oregon resident for one full year prior to the application deadline
New in 2020: Oregon Literary Career Fellowships:
Literary Arts will award fellowships to Oregon writers who are selected by the judges for their exceptional talent. One of these fellowships will be specifically for a writer of color. Please note: all writers who submit additional materials and ask to be considered for the Oregon Literary Career Fellowship will automatically be considered for an Oregon Literary Fellowship for Writers as well. However, writers can’t be awarded both fellowships in the same year. Applicants can only receive one fellowship.
Oregon Literary Fellowships for Publishers:
Literary Arts will award fellowships to support Oregon’s independent publishers and small presses. They are awarded to presses or magazines that demonstrate a commitment to literary publishing in the areas of poetry, fiction, literary nonfiction, drama, and young reader’s literature. Fellowships may be used to fund a specific project or for general operating expenses.
