Six yearlong residencies at San José State University in San José, California, which include a stipend of $15,000 each, are given annually to fiction writers and creative nonfiction writers. The fellows are required to give one public reading and may be asked to live in the Bay Area during the academic year, as public health guidelines allow. Using only the online submission system, submit up to 25 pages of prose, a project proposal, a résumé or curriculum vitae, and three letters of recommendation (uploaded by references) by January 3, 2023. There is no entry fee. Visit the website for complete guidelines.
