As part of the application for an Oregon Literary Fellowship from Literary Arts, writers can also choose to be considered for the newly established Writers of Color Fellowship. The goal of the Writers of Color Fellowship is to promote perspectives from a variety of cultural, ethnic and racial backgrounds, and encourage diverse writers to apply for Oregon Literary fellowships.
The Writers of Color Fellowship is intended to fund writers of color to initiate, develop, or complete a literary project in poetry, fiction, literary nonfiction, drama, or young readers literature. One Writers of Color Fellowship will be offered each year. All applications for the Writers of Color fellowship will also be considered for an Oregon Literary Fellowship. Self-identified writers of color who are current, full-time Oregon residents and who meet the eligibility requirements for Oregon Literary Fellowships are eligible to apply. Full guidelines can be found at http://www.literary-arts.org/what-we-do/oba-home/fellowships/fellowships/.
Oregon Literary Fellowships are intended to help Oregon writers initiate, develop or complete literary projects in poetry, fiction, literary nonfiction, drama and young readers literature. Writers in the early stages of their career are encouraged to apply. The awards are merit-based. Fellowships are also awarded to support Oregon's independent publishers and small presses. They are awarded to presses or magazines that demonstrate a commitment to literary publishing. The deadline to apply for a 2019 Oregon Literary Fellowship is Monday, July 9, 2018.
