At least three fellowships are given annually to poets, fiction writers, and creative nonfiction writers for four-week residencies at the American Antiquarian Society (AAS) in Worcester, Massachusetts, to support historical research and "imaginative, non-formulaic works dealing with pre-twentieth-century American history." Fellows will receive a stipend of $1,850. For residencies in 2017, using the online submission system submit up to 25 pages of poetry or prose, a project proposal, a résumé, and two letters of recommendation (sent directly to AAS by the references) by October 5. There is no entry fee. Send an SASE, call, e-mail, or visit the website for complete guidelines.
