Poets, fiction writers, and creative nonfiction writers who are U.S. citizens, at least 18 years of age, and have lived in Aitkin, Carlton, Cook, Itasca, Koochiching, Lake, or St. Louis counties in northeastern Minnesota for at least six months are eligible. Students enrolled full-time in a degree-granting program are ineligible. Submit up to 15 pages of poetry or prose, a description of the work sample, an application, a project description of up to three pages, and a résumé of up to two pages by April 25.
