The Ford Foundation and the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation have launched a fellowship program that honors disabled writers and artists in a variety of disciplines with grants of $50,000 each.
Administrators of grants, fellowships, and awards offer candid advice and insight into the application process, including tips on putting together a compelling writing sample.
Adrian Matejka, Robin Coste Lewis, and Paisley Rekdal are among the thirteen recipients of the inaugural Poets Laureate Fellowships.
Three Whiting Literary Magazine Prizes totaling up to $120,000 will be given annually for print and digital publications. The new awards program is intended to support both “nimble upstarts as well as established journals.”
