Poets House offers 10 fellowships from March 2019 to June 2019 to emerging poets living in New York City. Each fellow receives a $500 honorarium, a $100 travel stipend, and access to weekly workshops, mentoring sessions, and craft discussions with visiting poets, and other events at Poets House, located in lower Manhattan’s Battery Park City neighborhood. The faculty includes poet Anselm Berrigan. Fellows must participate in one public reading. Poets enrolled in a degree-granting program are not eligible. Stipends for childcare and transportation are available. Submit five to seven pages of poetry, a résumé, a personal statement, and contact information for two references by December 1.
