Poets House offers 10 fellowships from March to June 2017, to poets living in New York City. The twelve-week fellowship program includes weekly workshops, mentoring sessions, and free access to guest speaker appearances and other events at Poets House, located in lower Manhattan’s Battery Park City neighborhood. Fellows must participate in one public reading. Poets enrolled in a degree-granting program are not eligible. Stipends for childcare and transportation are available.
