Approximately 24 residential fellowships are given annually to emerging poets, fiction writers, and creative nonfiction writers to spend an academic semester in residence at the Hans Arnhold Center at the American Academy in Berlin. Fellows also receive a $5,000 monthly stipend, lodging, and round-trip airfare. Writers based in the United States who have published at least one book in any genre are eligible. Submit two writing samples totaling no more than 60 pages, a project proposal of five to seven pages, a curriculum vitae, and three letters of recommendation (sent directly to the Academy by the references) by September 29. There is no entry fee. Visit the website for the required entry form and complete guidelines.
