Michael and Marylee Fairbanks International Fellowship for African and Caribbean Writers

This is a fellowship a practicing writer told me about last year; another one just reminded me that this year’s application deadline is coming up (on April 1), so I thought a post would be a good idea.

The Bread Loaf Writers’ Conference Fairbanks Fellowship supports a writer living in Africa or the Caribbean to attend the Conference (which is held in Vermont). “Poets, fiction, and creative nonfiction writers who have published at least one but not more than two books in English within the last four years are eligible.” The fellowship includes the Conference fee plus travel expenses. Interested applicants can find out more and download the required forms here. NO APPLICATION FEE.

(Note that financial aid applications for other Conference scholarships/awards must be submitted earlier [March 1].)
