Brooklyn Poets Fellowships

Each workshop season, we award fellowships to promising students in need to take a workshop for free. We also award partial fellowships to finalists. Applicants must not be enrolled in a degree program with access to creative writing instruction or have previously published (or had accepted for publication) a book of poems. Additionally, applicants who hold a graduate degree in creative writing (MA/MFA/PhD) will be considered separately for only one fellowship award per season. All applicants are limited to one fellowship lifetime.

Our winter–spring fellowship application period is now closed. We’ll be accepting applications for our summer workshop season in May—check back then!
