Fine Arts Work Center Residency

September 24, 2014


Fine Arts Work Center Fellowships are open to writers and visual artists in the emerging stages of their careers. Fellows may be citizens of any country. Juries of working writers and artists make the admissions decisions. The Work Center awards fellowships to five poets and fiction fiction writers a year. In the visual arts, 2D, 3D and time-based work is considered. The Fine Arts Work Center actively seeks applicants from diverse cultural backgrounds.


The Fine Arts Work Center offers a unique residency for writers and visual artists in the crucial early stages of their careers. Located in Provincetown, Massachusetts, an area with a long history as an arts colony, the Work Center provides seven-month Fellowships to twenty Fellows each year in the form of living/work space and a modest monthly stipend. Residencies run from October 1 through May 1. Fellows have the opportunity to pursue their work independently in a diverse and supportive community of peers. A historic fishing port, Provincetown is situated at the tip of Cape Cod in an area of spectacular natural beauty, surrounded by miles of dunes and National Seashore beaches.

Visual arts Fellows are provided with apartments and separate working studios of approximately 400 square feet of floor space. Additional facilities include a basic woodshop, a print shop with etching press and a large format digital printer. Writing Fellows are housed in two- to three-room apartments. The Stanley Kunitz Common Room is handicapped accessible, as are two living spaces and several working studios.


Each year, the deadline for the Writing Fellowship applications is December 1, and the deadline for The Visual Arts Fellowship applications is February 1.
