Wallace Stegner Fellowship

October 3, 2016

WHO:

Anyone interested in a fellowship is welcome to apply. We do not require any degrees or tests for admission, no school of writing is favored over any other, chronological age is not a consideration.

WHAT:

Unique among writing programs, Stanford offers ten two-year fellowships each year, five in fiction and five in poetry. All the fellows in each genre convene weekly in a 3-hour workshop with faculty.

Fellows are regarded as working artists, intent upon practicing and perfecting their craft. The only requirements are workshop attendance and writing. The program offers no degree.

Fellowships include a living stipend of $26,000 per year. In addition, fellows’ tuition and health insurance are paid for by the Creative Writing Program. The Stegner Fellowship is a full-time academic commitment, and is not intended to be pursued concurrently with another degree program. Fellows must live close enough to Stanford to be able to attend workshops, readings, and events.

WHEN:

Applications for Fall 2017 admission deadline is December 1, 2016.
